Please tune into OUT Cast on WMPG community radio (90.9 FM in Portland, ME) on Monday, July 6 at 1:00 - 1:30 PM for a remarkable interview with Thomas Brown, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Maine, on Queer Spirit, a series of conversations exploring queer life and the power of the Sacred. Almost one year ago, on June 22,2019, the Rt. Rev. Thomas J. Brown was ordained and consecrated as the tenth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Maine – the first openly gay man to be elected to that church office in this state. (The Maine diocese is made up of more than 10,000 people in 59 churches and ministries from Kittery to Fort Kent.) Prior to coming to Maine, Thomas served parishes in Brattleboro, VT and Winchester, MA. In an earlier interview, Bishop Brown reflected on how New Hampshire some 16 years ago had elected the first openly gay man, Gene Robinson, as bishop of that diocese. Looking back on that time, Brown said, “It was just a great moment for American Christianity – a great moment to proclaim a message of God's love. Change in the culture continues to happen when we are authentic and tell the truth about who we are." Queer Spirit is co-hosted by Marvin Ellison and Tamara Torres McGovern.
