Prayer, Preposterous & Pagan

It’s been a trying week.  Let us gather in prayer. Prayer.  Now, more than ever, people of all faiths need to come together at one altar to pray for this country.  Angry individuals are coming unhinged and acting out in dangerous ways.  One sent 12 fake bomb packages to politicians…

Well, Let Me Say This About That
Hot Nerds & High Anxiety

For me, the nerdy hot thing started with Howard Bannister.  And, even if the term “nerdy hot” actually is an oxymoron, it didn’t much matter when Ryan O’Neal as Howard dropped his pajama bottoms in the bathroom doorway while Barbra Streisand was taking a bubble bath in What’s Up, Doc?…

Trash, Treachery & Travelers

I have turned my gaze abroad for this week’s ministry. Join me at the throne of grace. Trash. Oftentimes, my mission trips require me to travel by air. As a woman of faith, it is imperative that I be as thrifty as possible with such air travel regardless of who might…

And Miss Merriam Makes Me Think A Little

The English language has a rich and robust vocabulary.  So much so that I ended up in a linguistic wormhole trying to define the actual difference between some words that keep getting thrown around today.  For insight, I consulted by old friend, Miss Merriam-Webster. So I started with “privilege.”  Heard…

Squaws, Storks & Signs

We have a broad spectrum of concerns this week.  Join me on your knees, won’t you? Squaws.  Not having Sister Hillary Clinton around has left a void in the liberal stratosphere.  Then comes Sister Elizabeth Warren.  Regardless of her politics, the good Sister practices a convincing narrative.  I just don’t…

On The Road Again

On Wednesday evening, we attended the unveiling of the Texas Historical Commission plaque at the corner of Cedar Springs and Throckmorton, the first such recognition in the state for the LGBTQ community. That intersection, long known as “The Crossroads,” has deep meaning for many of us in that community, both individually…

Gaga, Gavel & Garrett

Another week, another roster of filth. Gaga. I’ve long been aware of the royalty titles among our heathen celebrities. Dame Judi Dench, Queen Latifah, Prince, Sir Elton John, Duke Ellington to name a few. But one such name has really thrown a wrench in these proceedings. A Sister who had to…

Self Service

Everything wasn’t bad in the good old days. While it’s certainly true that things are much better today, generally speaking, for everyone who isn’t a white, heterosexual male, there were some things that merit waxing nostalgic about. Take for example, service stations. Or, as we called them, filling stations. Nowadays,…

Moron, Murphy & Marriage

I’m tired of politics and needed to turn my ministry to something more vapid. Kanye.  I’d like to say something in Christian love to Brother Kanye West, or as he now prefers to be called, “Ye”.  I have been in prayer about the right thing, pondering my innermost thoughts and…

Pink Traveler: Sleeping Around Mexico City

¡Viva Mexico! This past July, we headed south of the border to Mexico City for the first time and spent nine days exploring this fantastic, huge, cosmopolitan destination. We experienced so many wonderful things that we decided to split our travel coverage into two stories, focusing exclusively on hotels we…
