The Divine Spark: Personal Stories of LGBTQ Discovery is edited by Rev. Nancy Hanson, who serves as the pastor for Messiah Lutheran church in Washburn, WI and First Lutheran Church in Port Wing, WI. The Divine Spark represents a collection of stories from LGBTQ parishioners and others who answered the question: What would I say to someone who is gender non-conforming, or to another who is starting to notice their own same-gender attraction, upon hearing hateful comments?
This book is to provide everyone, especially the LGBTQ community, a resource to promote equality. Mary Dougherty believes, “This collection of stories beautifully illustrates the power of radical truth-telling and vulnerability as tools to foster change and understanding in community.”
Rev. Nancy Hanson serves as the pastor for Messiah Lutheran church in Washburn, Wisconsin and First Lutheran Church in Port Wing, Wisconsin.
