Believe Out Loud

BOL logoA group of 80 wonderful people from various denominations across the state participated in a workshop geared to help us learn ways to share our stories and passion for inclusion of LGBT persons in our churches.  The workshop was led by Rachel Harvey of Reconciling Ministries Network and Jennifer Mihok of Methodist Federation for Social Action.   Those of us attending brought with us a willingness to learn, to share, to plan, and to hope.   We left the gathering with new friendships, insights, and enthusiasm for the work God is calling us to do.  May we continue to be open to the Spirit in our midst, giving us courage and discernment as we seek to say and do “the right thing, at the right time, in the right place, in the right way.”

Thanks to all who came and all who made this event possible.   Thanks to God for wanting more for us, for the church and the world, than we’ve dared to imagine!
