About the Author
Ordained in 1981, Maurine (Renee) C. Waun, D.Min. has served the United Methodist Church (Western PA Conference) and then-since 1999-several Unitarian Universalist churches in PA, OH and WV. Her degrees are: B.A. in French from Eastern Michigan University; M.A. in Linguistics from Univ. of Pittsburgh; M.Div. and D.Min. from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. Prior to ministry, she spent many years as a teacher on a variety of levels including Montessori, high school and university. She has been active in AIDS advocacy, as well as speaking and serving on behalf of disenfranchised groups through various community groups and boards of directors. In 2005 Waun became the Founding Sponsor of the African Rural School Foundation, for 400 disadvantaged children and AIDS orphans in Uganda (www.africanruralschools.org) and she takes volunteers there on a working trip every winter for two weeks. Waun is also one of the founders of the developing Quest International Charter School in Pittsburgh (www.questinternational.org). In addition to working and volunteering, she loves to travel the world and spend time with her family. Dr. Waun's book MORE Than Welcome: Learning to Embrace Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Persons in the Church continues to inspire GLBT persons, families, allies and advocates as the issue becomes more and more visible in mainstream churches.

Save the sermonizing. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Spend more time with the gospel. Teach and preach and practice. Let the people learn the truth. Not everyone is equally able to accept what you have to say, but there is no reason to condemn others for the lack of understanding. Prayer is often the only way to handle these issues with those persons.
