I was reading this afternoon from a gay Christian author, Peter J. Gomes, and came across a passage where the quoted Edwin Markham’s poem Outwitted. He was quoting it in reference to how LGBTQ Christians are often treated or spoken of as heretics or cast out of their churches. I thought it was quite a beautiful poem and decided to share it:

He drew a circle that shut me out —
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in.

Have a blessed Sunday!
