Lenten Post #2: Coming out again, and again, and again . . .

gems

In Post #2 of my 2016 Lenten challenge (read more here) I’m sharing a blog post I have shared before. It is a piece that affected me deeply and has helped to shape how I see and approach the world and the people in it. Lucas Hargis talks about having to come out to people again and again, and how some people he’s known a long time view that coming out, and it made me think about my own thoughts and reactions to people. I hope it gives you some insight as well.
