Cecilia Un-Closeted

Some of you have been following Cecilia's story on Closeted Pastor. For some time she has been soul-searching on her blog about whether--then how--to come out to her congregation that she is in a relationship with another woman.

You can imagine the anxiety regarding that. Would she be rejected, shamed, fired? Would her career go up in smoke?

But is life really life when it is lived in secret?

Well, she did it. She told them.

Check this story.

Now, guess what?

The congregation yawned and asked if her partner would be interested in singing in the choir.



  1. hahahahahahahahaha i love the last line "yawned and asked if her partner would like to join the choir".. glad she came out, glad they didn't care. another reason i'm glad i joined the presbys.

  2. The choir thing was neat, but you KNOW it's gonna be okay when the custodian says so!

    Wooooo Hoooooooooooo, Cecilia!

  3. I don't know that she has come out as a Presby. That would require monumental soul-searching.
