We received another question about polyamory, and we’re happy to be getting more and more of these types of questions because it means people are starting to get more comfortable talking about it! This listener from Tumblr is in a mono-poly relationship: meaning one is monogamous while the other one is poly. The listener asks, “Any advice on how we can both feel comfortable and able to be our full selves in the relationship?”
We then queer the text from Acts 10 which had such a strong message about inclusivity. If people are going to start throwing texts against queer folks, they should learn from the books of Acts. Tune in to hear how we queer the text and what message it brings to queer folks and those who are continuing to do the work.

While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Spirit fell on everyone who heard the word. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. They heard them speaking in other languages and praising God. Peter asked, “These people have received the Holy Spirit just as we have. Surely no one can stop them from being baptized with water, can they?” He directed that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they invited Peter to stay for several days.
