Richard Brown shares personal stories about the hardships he faces as a poor, gay Christian and how he hopes to change the anti-gay view of modern Christianity in "Sunday Morning: A Testimony of Life"
In his book "Sunday Morning: A Testimony of Life" (ISBN 1463700768) Richard Brown shares his personal testimony on life as a gay African-American Christian. Brown hopes to shed light on the world of gay Christians and the struggles they face from the organizations and churches that have challenged the idea of who is worthy to serve the Lord. "Sunday Morning" attempts to stand as a contrast to the developed practices of today's churches and asks for a change to solidarity at all costs.
Through personal experiences and scriptures, the author seeks to show the reader that God loves all people, including homosexuals. He expresses that the growing interest and coverage of same-sex marriage has allowed Christian organizations and churches to express their disdain on the topic of homosexuality.
In "Sunday Morning," Brown uses the same tools as these organizations to show the readers that it is possible to be a homosexual and Christian at the same time. He shares his personal experiences of living as a gay Christian and his times of prayer and communication with God to show readers how he made it through life's struggles.
"After I look at what God has done for me, I now have to testify as to His power and love, and how He accepts me for me," Brown says. "I believe my message will be better served by suggesting and supporting that every individual has the ability to hear from God on their own through study, fasting and prayer."
Brown hopes "Sunday Morning" can be good news for homosexuals who are constantly the focus of Christian scrutiny. He hopes that all Christians will be able to worship God together, and use his work as a source of hope and relief.
