People of faith often feel called upon to be of service.

Volunteering for a social issue they feel passionate about is a popular way to put faith in action.

As both a volunteer and volunteer manager myself I have learned a key to being of service is to bring skills, but also leave behind a know-it-all attitude.

In the spring of 2014, I found myself in the last place I’d ever expected—the dark, close-set box of an old confessional. The wood muffled all other sounds as the priest slid open a little screen before me.

I knelt down and said I couldn’t remember the last time I was there, and I began to weep.

Christian persecution in the United States is real. It’s just not what you think. Christian persecution isn’t about having to offer birth control to women.

It’s not about having to serve wedding cakes to gay and lesbian couples. Christian persecution isn’t even having people call you out when you spout homophobic, sexist, or racist opinions, veiled blasphemously as biblical.

We are not the same America.

We are not the same America that we were 20 or even 10 years ago. For decades, civil liberties framed the discourse about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) justice. Now marriage, a union that is sacred for so many, is at the forefront of our national consciousness in ways we could not conceive. Now, more than ever, we cannot omit religion.
