Sacred Stories of Lesbian and Queer Religious
A new book from New Ways Ministry
LOVE TENDERLY is an anthology written by twenty-three vowed women religious who embrace their sexual identity as lesbian or queer. While telling their stories of self discovery and acceptance they explore questions related to vowed life, falling in love, and advice they would give to a lesbian or queer woman considering religious life. Readers will be inspired and challenged to deeper consideration of their own psycho-sexual-spiritual journey.
Pricing: Print copies are available for $19.95. E-books are $9.99. A discount on print copies is available for vowed women religious (see button below).
