Sacred Sexuality

To hold something as sacred means that it is set apart, held in a special place in honour of divinity. And with my sexuality, regardless of my state of mind at the time I hold it sacred, I honour the divine source as I connect either with myself or with someone else. It is part of my worship, part of my devotion. To express our sexuality is to express our humanity and in my tradition humanity holds a high value. Love is the supreme source and eros is a part of that divinity. When eros flows in a person, out of a person, between people it is a sacrament, a manifestation of divine eros. It is also part of what makes us human and a celebration of both the divine and humanity. Read more

Pirate Theology

We become pirate theologians (with all the positive, or romanticized aspect of that image, and perhaps unfortunately, sometimes some of the negative). But our purpose is not confrontation, or to somehow take over the establishment. No, our purpose is to gather in these wild, lawless islands and live out a rag-tag but true, lawless but loving, tradition-breaking, but not without tradition, or simply a radically different Christianity that does not actively threaten the normal Christian daily life in any other way than that it exist.

Queer Theology

“queer” refers to the erasing or deconstructing of boundaries with respect to these categories of sexuality and gender. – Patrik S. Cheng, “Radical Love” So in the sense of erasing boundaries, deconstructing societal norms of traditional marriage and relationships and sexuality, I am queer. I apply a queer philosophy to life and a queer theology to my spirituality. “to ‘queer’ something is to turn convention and authority on its head. It is about seeing things in a different light and reclaiming voices and sources”– Patrik S. Cheng, “Radical Love” This has been my practice, both in theology and theopraxi, on my spiritual path and in my everyday life.
