Pastor of a bilingual, multicultural church for more than a decade, Gary Commins knows that “diversity” is a spiritual exercise that can be as charged with anxiety as it is laced with hope. In Becoming Bridges, Commins lays the groundwork for diversity as an intrinsic part of the life of faith and calls us to become “bridge people”: people who are willing to traverse gaps of ignorance and bridge the things that separate us―religion, race, culture, class, gender, and sexual orientation.

About the Author:

Gary Commins is rector of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Long Beach, California. In twenty-five years of ordained ministry he has served in an ecumenical campus ministry, in a bilingual, multicultural parish, in a congregation with a large gay and lesbian population, and, for ten years, teaching a seminary class in Multicultural Ministry. He is also a trained spiritual director with an interest in mysticism and is currently the Vice Chair of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship.

Review:

Becoming Bridges is an important book for clergy and laity at a time when America is at a crossroads. Our decisions and the action we take today, in becoming bridges, will impact the future of generations to come. Gary Commins has created a scholarly work, written in an easy to read articulate style. Brilliant. (Richard R. Blake Reader Views)
