Mixed Orientation Marriages

This moving interview with Carol Boltz (wife of contemporary Christian music artist, Ray Boltz) is timely and poignant.

She shares candidly about her family's experiences when Ray came out last year.  

The thing that I think is most touching is that through her words listeners can see themselves more clearly, no matter what side of this difficult issue they may be.

It is easy to forget the media and hype about a Christian "celebrity" and remember that we are all just people with dreams, hopes, fears and struggles.  

It ends with a challenge to the church and a dream for what is possible if the church began to reach out to its LGBT members and supported them and loved them as Christ does.
