Saturday Symposium: Future Celibacy and Vocation Topics

Hi readers! Happy Saturday. We hope that you’re having a great weekend. Lindsey has had an awesome week getting into the full swing of things at the new job. We’re looking forward to spending a long weekend together. Today, we have plans to visit some of the critters at a nearby wildlife center.

Here’s our new Saturday Symposium question:

How this works: It’s very simple. We ask a multi-part question related to a topic we’ve blogged about during the past week or are considering blogging about in the near future, and you, our readers, share your responses in the comments section. Feel free to be open, reflective, and vulnerable…and to challenge us. But as always, be mindful of the comment policy that ends each of our posts. Usually, we respond fairly quickly to each comment, but in order to give you time to think, come back, add more later if you want, and discuss with other readers, we will wait until after Monday to respond to comments on Saturday Symposium questions.

This week’s Saturday Symposium question: As we reviewed our archives, we noted that we have been talking about a lot of LGBT topics in recent weeks. Some people have given us feedback that they wish we were talking more about celibacy and vocation. We do our best to give our readers input on the posts we write and would love to hear your thoughts: What questions do you have about celibacy and vocation? Have you been inspired by the example of a particular celibate person? Do you have questions you have wanted to ask us about celibate partnership? 

We look forward to reading your responses. If you’re concerned about having your comment publicly associated with your name, please consider using the Contact Us page to submit your comment. We can post it under a pseudonym (i.e. John says, “your comment”) or summarize your comment in our own words (i.e. One person observed…). Participating in this kind of public dialogue can be risky, and we want to do what we can to protect you even if that means we preserve your anonymity. Have a wonderful weekend!
