Last year, Worship Artist and Song Writer Vicky Beeching shocked many when she announced she was gay. You probably sing some of Vicky’s songs in your church (like Glory to God Forever).
The revelation sent shock-waves through the Christian community… some even asking if it was ok to sing Beeching’s songs anymore.
But now, the shock has worn off, and Beeching sat down for her first full interview since ‘coming out’. Here are some quotes I found interesting…
Coming out was one of the best decisions of my life. I have absolutely no regrets about doing so and just wish I’d done it much sooner. It’s brought me a huge amount of joy, but also a sense of grief for the years I ‘lost’ by not being fully myself.
I’ve met an incredible woman and we are now dating, so that’s a huge source of happiness for me. When I think back to a year ago, I could not have imagined how happy I’d be today. It’s proof that when you step into full authenticity, life starts to flow better and you feel a renewed sense of energy and hope.
I am certain that LGBT equality is reaching a tipping point in society and that the church will follow that trajectory. We live in historic times as we see these huge shifts take place. I’m looking forward to doing all I can with my remaining days and years to be a voice for equality, to challenge the status quo, and to encourage LGBT people that God loves us just the way we are. – See more at: http://elielcruz.religionnews.com/2015/01/28/gay-christian-songwriter-vicky-beeching-live-historic-times/#sthash.AMrwcbBd.dpuf
