Bob Chapman: Everett, Washington

Every gay person must come out....Once they realize...we are indeed everywhere, every myth, every lie, every innuendo will be destroyed once and all. And once you do, you will feel so much better.

(1951-March 9, 2006)

When I allow myself to become angry, I disconnect from God and connect with the evil force that empowers fighting. When I allow myself to become fearful, I disconnect from God and connect with the evil force that encourages flight.

Tom Fox, "Fight or Flight?"

Weary of all trumpeting, weary of all killing,
weary of all songs that sing promise, non-fulfilling,

we would raise, O Christ, one song;
we would join in singing

that great music pure and strong,
wherewith heaven is ringing.

—Martin H. Franzmann (1907-1976), alt., from The Hymnal 1982, number 572 (New York: The Church Hymnal Corporation, 1985)
