Rosaria Butterfield’s life wasn’t typical. An English professor at Syracruse University, Rosaria was a full-fledged feminist and lesbian bent on exposing a sector she believed was out to threaten her freedoms, the religious right. Rosaria recalls how she viewed Christians back then, when she was a respected leader in the LGBT community. But then a surprising letter came her way that would introduce her to pastor Ken Smith and his wife, Floy. Rosaria talks about her developing friendship with this couple, and what they did to welcome her and reconsider her views about God.
