Each time this lesbian Christian pastor nears the “Celestial City,” there’s another“Slough of Despond,” “Valley of Humiliation” or “River of Death” to cross.It’s a kind of miracle that Rev. Cyd is still standing after being born a female in a male dominated culture, after accepting her sexual orientation in thehomophobic South, after refusing to renounce her call to ministry in a Christiancommunity that forbids women clergy, after adopting a child, losing three different partners and suffering through spiritual and emotional abuse as a pastor.Cyd has a great sense of humor. The chapters are short. Her story is honest, frank, easyto follow and never dull. And though her journey is sometimes painful to read, it is alsoa celebration of God’s presence and power in the life of a lesbian, Christian pastor whonever stops believing that God loves her and is with her every step of the way. ReadingCyd’s story reminded me that God loves me, too, and is with me on my own sometimespainful journey. If you need to be reminded of the Holy Spirit’s presence and power inyour life, just sit down next to Rev.Cyd just Two Pews from Crazy and enjoy.- Mel White,Author, Stranger at the Gate, to be Gay and Christian in America
