After Bishop Gene Robinson was accepted as the first openly gay bishop by the general convention of the Episcopal Church, meeting in Minneapolis Minnesota last week, he was interviewed by “All Things Considered” on NPR. He said that throughout the ordeal of the debate in Minneapolis he prayed Psalm 27. He quoted some of the passages on the air with ringing sincerity “men advance against me to devour my flesh.”
“Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then will I be confident. .”
Upon hearing his words my faith was deeply touched and vitalized. Gracias a Dios.
