Elisha was ploughing the field when Elijah threw his cloak upon him and so invited him to share in his prophetic mission. It was literally a case of burning his bridges leaving no option of turning back. The second reading is taken from the letter to the Galatians and St Paul reminds each and everyone of us of our call to be freed from bondage to sin. Jesus freed us once and for all and He means for us to remain free and not to surrender once again to the bondage to sin.

Along the way, Jesus met people who professed to want to follow Him but Jesus reminded them that His journey would be difficult and painful. He called some to follow Him but they hesitated wanting to attend to their homely chores first. But Jesus reminded them that when God calls anyone to His service, it is simply not acceptable to postpone our response.
No-one who looks back is fit for the Kingdom.
Mark Twain Quotes About Rewriting Your Life
Each of us is called to a mission. Do we even acknowledge the call? And how do we respond? At the time there was no other choice but to be a woman, so I figured I was meant to be one. After a lifetime of dodging the issue, I finally woke up in Trinidad, Colo. I was a woman. I was lucky to find some of the few lesbians who were willing to regard me — a newly minted, self-appointed woman — as one of them. So I said to heck with it, you win.

When it comes to gender and sexuality, I am nothing but possibilities. All of us are virtually nothing in the eyes of a culture that sees two and only two. Recent surveys have shown that 50 percent of millennials believe gender to be a spectrum, and it seems that over 35 percent of the members of Generation Z know someone who uses a gender-neutral pronoun.

About , of us were there from around the country, a good turnout but much smaller than subsequent marches — when being out and proud was less dangerous.
At the second national march, in , I was invited to be one of eight major speakers. It was exhilarating to speak before a crowd of nearly one million people.
