The Far Between website now has a blog which will have new posts each week. I will be contributing regularly to the blog, as will a handful of other people who are all thoughtful, articulate humans. The following is from the introductory post for the blog:
Throughout the process of creating Far Between, it's been apparent that the tone of conversations about the experience of being homosexual and Mormon greatly affects how people view themselves and respond to their situations. As part of Far Between's effort to engage more constructive and helpful conversations, the Far Between Blog is not only a source of project updates and opportunities but a place to share examples of conversations and lessons learned.
Blog authors will share experiences and thoughts from internal, interpersonal, and community conversations around homosexuality and Mormonism. Weekly posts will include narration, deconstruction, and results from their own introspection, interpersonal conversations, and public discussions such as news media and panel forums.
In addition to sharing your own stories, we invite readers to join us in practicing empathy-centered conversation by subscribing to Far Between, reading and commenting on new blog posts every week, and joining or starting conversatinos in your respective communities, whether online or geographical.
We see individuals and organizations increasingly engaging and changing environments and lives for the better. We offer the Far Between blog as one way you can join in filling the gulf many feel between the conceptions or experiences around homosexuality and Mormonism with constructive love and compassionate communication.
My first post is up! Come read and comment and participate in the conversation.
