My aim in this qualitative research is to reflect a theology that is practical and that embodies the priority of justice while drawing on the fields of theopoetics and queer theology. I confront the issue of how to give voice to stories of human becoming for LGBTQ persons of faith who have been influenced by a Christian religious tradition. By employing a grounded theory methodology, I seek to trace the narrative maps by which persons of faith chart their stories of spiritual transformation, and to build a valid and reliable theory concerning this path. To this end, I apply the practice of mystagogic accompaniment as a conversational facilitative qualitative interview method.
My research is being conducted in rural and urban cities in British Columbia, Canada.
