Welcome to Full Frontal Faith: Erring on the Edge of Honest, the theological musings of David R. Weiss.
Thanks for finding your way to my site. Besides hosting my blog, this site offers a sampling of my writing, a link to my CD of hymns and my book of essays, both titled, To the Tune of a Welcoming God, and ways to connect with me as a resource person for your area.
I’ve launched a Patreon site to help support my work as an independent public theologian. I’ll be most grateful if you’d consider pledging your support. Learn more here about how you can support me on Patreon.
During 2021 I’ve been blogging …
During 2020 I blogged at the intersection of faith … and politics, pandemic, race, and more. Find all my 2020 blog posts listed HERE.
During 2019 (actual beginning in Advent / December 2018) I blogged weekly for an entire year at the intersections of Christian faith and climate crisis (often brining in the Transition Movement as well) in a series titled The Gospel in Transition. Find these collected 2019 blogs HERE.

May the Force be with you in all your good works! I’ve appreciated your writings and observations on the Welcoming Community and related topics.

I picked up a copy of To the tune of a welcoming God at the recent Creating Change confrence here in Minneapolis. At first, I was so moved I could only read about 5 pages as I was unable to see through the tears. It was as if a great weight had been lifted. Mr. Weiss, thank you and bless you.
I plan to purchase “to the tune of a welcoming God”
It was the best I have read on this subject.
Thank you David for the good work that you are doing.
I was able to get a book, TO THE TUNE OF A WELCOMING GOD and it was given to me as a gift from David Weiss him self. Thanks a lot David for planting a holy seed and may God bless the work of your hands. AMEN

Does G-d really believe that homosexuality is a sin? Or he just doesn’t approve of it. Or the abomination is with boys under 12
Does G-d really believe that homosexuality is a sin?
No. Of course there are plenty of Christian who say otherwise, but in the same way that we at ROLMM have a “path acknowledgment” that affirms there are MANY ways to G-d, I believe that G-d acknowledges there are MANY ways too love.
Or he just doesn’t approve of it.
I think G-d is 100% fine with ANY love that is consensual, respectful, mutual, and not-exploitive.
Or the abomination is with boys under 12.
Yes. This is one type of relationship (common in the New Testament era) that is deeply problematic in a number of ways — especially because of the power differential and the patriarchal values implicit in it.
I’ll send you an email with some longer thoughts!
