Moments of Transitions

This year 2020 began with transitions in ministry for me. 


Deep wounding, new life, and affirming oneself in Christ

I have spent the better part of my life dealing with “imposter syndrome” brought on by trauma I experienced at a very young age.


How Are You Checking Into This Space?

Sometimes, I forget the effort it takes for some LGBTQ+ folks to simply exist in any religious space.

Entre dos Mundos

Mis amig@s y yo estamos planificando comenzar una campaña del juego Dragones y Calabozos.


Do you really care who I am?

I often remind people that as a Puerto Rican my story is one of migration not immigration.


Praying, Until

Mark 10:46-48 As [Jesus] and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"


Orando, Hasta Que...

Marcos 10:46-48 46  Y cuando Jesús ya salía de la ciudad, seguido de sus discípulos y de mucha gente, un mendigo ciego llamado Bartimeo, hijo de Timeo, estaba sentado junto al camino. 47 Al oír que era Jesús de Nazaret, el ciego comenzó a gritar: —¡Jesús, Hijo de David, ten compasión de mí!  48 Muchos lo reprendían para que se callara, pero él gritaba más todavía: —¡Hijo de David, ten compasión de mí! 


From Yesterday to Today and a Just World within us and for the rest of us…

Proverbs 22:1-23 "to show you what is right and true, so that you may give a true answer to those who sent you..."


De Ayer a Hoy y por Un Mundo Justo dentro de Sí Mismas y para el resto de nosotrxs…

Proverbios 22:1-23 para hacerte saber la certidumbre de las palabras de verdad, a fin de que vuelvas a llevar palabras de verdad a los que te enviaron?
