I am very excited to announce that Andrew Ramer has written a letter of endorsement of Bridge of Light. I know that Andrew considered his decision carefully, because his initial response to my request for an endorsement was No. His letter explaining the No contained several important points. Andrew also mentioned that he had at one point tried to generate the momentum for a holiday to celebrate gay spirituality, though it didn't quite take off. He wished me luck, even as he declined to endorse the specific idea.
Fortunately, I received great feedback from folks like Andrew and in early January 2005 reformulated the proposal for the holiday. The result was a new Vision Statement that succeeded in getting a much more enthusiastic response from endorsers. Andrew's objections having been handled, Andrew sent me a letter of endorsement in early 2005. (I would have posted Andrew's endorsement earlier, but I've been on hiatus from posting on Bridge of Light, and am just now returning to active duty.)
Andrew Ramer is the author of the gay spirituality classic Two Flutes Playing, available from Lethe Press' White Crane's Spirituality Series. Ramer is a mythologist for gay men, providing evidence to the harmony of gender, love and sex. He lives in San Franscisco.
