It was a struggle to decide whether to write this. I don’t think I’m likely to add anything unique to this situation. What finally made me do it, though, was the chance someone in the LGBT community might see it. You could see essentially the same comments coming from Glenn Beck and Franklin Graham, but maybe you aren’t willing to read them just on reputation. You might think they hate you, so you don’t care what they have to say. But since you don’t know me, I hope you might be willing to give me these few moments of your time.

How Do I Become A Saint?

To start, let’s have a little bit of an update. We had our most recent Quest Forums meeting this past Sunday, which makes three so far. That means Stage 2 is still in its infant stages, but there has been some encouraging progress to this point. We’ve had very good conversations, which is proof of concept. And I believe everyone has gotten something out of them. At the very least, I know I have. Also, most of the attendees have expressed an interest in not only returning, but in inviting others to join us. QF needs that. Word of mouth is the best advertising I can have.
