What’s Your Orientation

  1. Another super entry, Hope. Because of your help, I am understanding the identity crisis and self-definition. It seems similar to how, in introductory conversation, people usually ask what one does. And for many, the answer is equivalent to their identity. What a paradigm shift for anyone–LBGT, SSA, or none of the above–to see themselves in a different way, and to identify as something other than the default (read socially conformed presentation, depending our your particular social group). For all of us, I am grateful for the Spirit’s work in tenderly and patiently showing us our true identities. We are so much more than we think. And what we are is pretty scary and wonderful, dangerous and amazing…just like Him.

  2. Hi Hope, found your blog through the journey and so glad I did. We are studying Exodus in our Women’s ministry this year and this entry ties well into our focus on freedom. It is a shadow of how Jesus will come 1500 years later and provide the ultimate freedom. Thanks for challenging me to look at freedom even more deeply, because no matter who we are we still need to surrender to Jesus and allow him to rule our hearts.

  3. Hope, As always your journey is such a blessing to follow. Would really like to get together sometime for a real face to face visit. (Also I have a small table of yours to be returned. It was on the patio.) Could you meet at the arboretum for lunch someday? — Sat., Sun. or ??? Be creative and suggest whatever would work best for you. XOS
