Questing Parson Video Interview with Rev. Paul M. Turner

The Questing Parson, named in 2008 as one of the Top 50 Methodist Theological Blogs, has posted a video interview with Rev. Paul M. Turner, founding pastor of Gentle Spirit Christian Church.

The Questing Parson – who in real life is the Rev. Guy Kent, former pastor of the Epworth United Methodist Church in Atlanta’s Candler Park neighborhood and now serving as a retired supply pastor at a rural church in Northwest Georgia – is adding video interviews to his popular blog, the first of which is the interview with the Rev. Turner.

The 41-minute interview, which is available in its entirety on the Questing Parson blog and on Vimeo, is posted below for the viewer’s convenience – first in its entirety, and then in four segments.

The interview with Rev. Turner was conducted earlier in the year and chronicles his struggle with being called to the Christian ministry while being gay. At moments emotional, sometimes inspiring, and throughout informative, the interview presents a deeper understanding of the struggle of gay Christians as well as appreciation for the marvelous ministry to the homeless, the marginalized, and the LGBTQ community conducted by Gentle Spirit Christian Church.
