Lee Catoe offers his reflections on the role body image plays in the LGBTQI community, and how we can begin to seek out the divine in one another. While studying Pre-Med at Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC, Lee began to realize that his call to helping others had less to do with medicine, and more to do with ordained ministry. As a gay man now seeking ordination in the Presbyterian Church USA, Lee currently serves as a supply pastor for local congregations in Middle TN. He's also in his final year at Vanderbilt Divinity School pursuing a Masters of Divinity, and his gender pronouns are he/him/his.
Until somewhat recently, the Presbyterian Church did not ordain LGBTQI-identifying folks. Lee's role as a minister opens up a conversation of how to serve people in your community who may disagree with you, or may disagree with your entire identity.
