As part of of QueerTheology.com's 2017 Synchroblog on the topic of "Identity", this video essay explores how my gay identity connects with the purpose of my life.
This episode explores charisms (gifts of the Holy Spirit), Parable of the Talents, Body of Christ, the Catholic Catechism, and discernment of vocation (calling).
The video concludes with a continuation of my LGBTQ ministry exploring how I ended up here.
The speaker is a religious educator with two degrees in religious studies and 15 years of secondary and higher level teaching experience.
