Being Persecuted

Luike 21:12-19  “They will seize and persecute you.”

Persecution evokes a sense of dread in our hearts, and seems like a far off term in our Western thought. But for me there are times of persecution in living out my faith, my practice.  I am perscuted because of being the queer priest, by queers who hate thd church, I am persecuted by people who have been hurt by the church, and by people who have  been abused. I have been told I am very single minded, and I am for only in being single minded can I stay the course.  What I have learned is that persecution–comes with the territory–you either embrace it or run and I choose to embrace. it. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
