Thank you so much for this heartfelt response, David Montgomery — and for sharing your story.

Gosh, Anna Hundert, I’m blushing with pride. I admit to being both surprised and delighted by the revelation that you’re Episcopalian—a member of the bravest member church in the Anglican Communion, censured by the primates for being the first to approve equal marriage! Still, I should have seen it in your Medium profile. Who else but a progressive Anglican could mix the clever “reading as a writer, writing as a reader” with “intersectional, trans-inclusive feminism” and then throw in a bit of Potteresque “currently using my magic powers for good”? God bless you, girl. Damn—I mean, lady. Shit, I mean woman. Oh Hell, I mean . . . “And also with you.”
