Updates from the Truth in Progress Community

We mourn the death and celebrate the life of the Rev. Peter Gomes. Gil writes in today's Truth in Progress blog about his conversations with Rev. Gomes,

"For some persons, the idea of a black minister in a predominantly white Church or a gay minister in a predominantly straight church is unreconcilable. But Peter Gomes and I knew that despite the biases and bigotry of some, reconciliation within and beyond takes place through a loving God."

We send our deepest sympathy to his circle of loved ones.
