Ted Swartz, Listening for Grace
In Ted Swartz's Listening for Grace, the cello is the voice of a son who has told his father that he is gay. This reflects the Christian tradition in which the voice of the person giving rise to a conversation is not taking part in the conversation. It is also redolent of the ineffable pain experienced by many who are faced with the loss of their community because of their sexuality or the sexuality of a loved one.
Ted joined us to talk about the power of listening to the stories of people losing their communities because they are gay, and about the conversations people are having about this issue within their churches.
