Our guest today is Jonathan Hoyt, who is a Kantor and organist in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and who also happens to be gay and celibate. Learn how Jonathan has come to exist between two cultural worlds, how he reconciles his faith and sexuality, and why he calls himself gay rather than “same-sex attracted”. This is an exercise in listening to the story and experiences of a new friend rather than promoting one way or another of wrestling with one’s own identity, perceptions, and sexual ethic. Take his religious beliefs seriously, and take his perceptions seriously, which is what we are all about on this podcast. We are grateful for Jonathan’s candor, vulnerability, and willingness to talk about his perspective with us.
