Hey everyone, I’m doing a lot of my writing these days for an outfit called “Religion Dispatches.” It’s a wonderful blog that leans a little bit left of center commenting at the intersection of religion and politics.

I have been quoted in a piece over at Huffington Post about President-Elect Barack Obama’s selection of Rick Warren to give the invocation at his inauguration.

Wow, two great reviews in one day!
A friend once accused me of being a “piss-poor feminist” so I’m glad to get a good review from Feminist Review.
Here’s an excerpt:
is an easy read, a loving read, actually. It is as much of a protective shield—coating the reader with images of a mysterious and perfect Creator—as it is an empowering how-to guide for healing from miscommunication, hate, and self-doubt. Chellew-Hodge’s work exudes confident and practical steps for those silenced and marginalized because of their sexual identity. She tackles how language is used to dehumanize the lives of the GLBTQ population, facing those who hate you, and the art of “surrendering” for true strength and peace. Chellew-Hodlge consistently advocates for trust, self-worth, and patience.

The Reconciling Ministries Network of the United Methodist Church has been kind enough to allow me to guest blog over at their blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
First, let me offer an apology. I’m sorry there is even a need for my new book: Bulletproof Faith: A Spiritual Survival Guide for Gay and Lesbian Christians. I would have loved to have written a completely different book. Perhaps a feel-good self-help book, like the ones that have made Wayne Dyer a rich man, or perhaps one that celebrates the awe and wonder of being a follower of Christ – without having to distinguish between those followers based on something inconsequential to God, like their sexual orientation. But, because there is a faction of Christians who insist on making this distinction, there is a need for this book, and for that I’m sorry.
