Friday

love shows up

It's National Coming Out Day. Ben Moberg is sharing his story and shedding the anonymity he'd blogged under until this point, which is pretty freakin' bold. I might have cried like a baby when I read it. And again when I recalled the story to Jim.

Another friend, Kate Jones, had these words that I wanted to share, too:

If someone comes out to you and you do not affirm their gayness, please refrain from expressing that judgement. Those words will leave the worst scars. Try these words instead: "Thank you for being honest with me. I love you."

Vulnerability and honesty are gifts to honor. Love shows up, incarnate in what we do.

The stakes are too high to extend anything less.
