As Inclusive as God's Grace

Sorry for the long silence... I have been struggling with a back strain that makes sitting in a chair the most painful option in the many options of what to do with my body, so there has been no blogging for me.

But I do want to take a moment to point you to something happening in my denomination of which I am so, so proud. A NYC-based organization called Presbyterian Welcome tries to live into this vision:

As followers of Christ, convinced by Scripture and the Reformed tradition, we envision a world as inclusive as God's grace and a church where God's call to service is affirmed in all persons.

Oh, can I get an AMEN?

Anywho, this lovely group is hosting a bunch of LGBTQ persons experiencing God's call to ministry for a retreat (I believe they do this every year), and they have a blog, Queer Presbyterians. I have it on good authority (or maybe it says it in the blog) that any supportive comments will be collected and read to the group each morning.

You know what to do.

I went to wish the group well, but I was too late as, the retreat is over. I did wish them God's blessing and Godspeed.
