‘I think that we all need to start with grace and compassion. Set the issues, beliefs and convictions aside and let’s see one another as we truly are : God’s children in need of His grace. I believe the church and other Christian ministries and organizations like World Vision are being robbed of the incredible contributions that LGBT people can make. There are so many incredible gifts, talents and abilities that were God-given that are being unused and de-valued because of the labels we place on one another.’

    JULIA

    Julai and others like her should never felt the need to consult with you, having never, EVER, been placed in a situation by his spiritual communities where they would think that choosing Love is choosing something other than choosing God.

    PARENTS BLESSED WITH GAY CHILDREN:

    Once again, you can count on the Marin Foundation to convey only the suffering and hardship that comes to the Family as a result of Hearts that, like the Grinch’s, are two sizes too small (gay kids don’t create your suffering, BTW, the pusillanimous Souls of those that reject them, do). Never the blessings. Never the expansive Love. Never the spiritual growth that comes from letting go of God concepts that are too small for you and for us. Never the increased goodness and grace that YOU enjoy, as a result of our being here, sharing the spiritual journey with you. Such an unduly negative emphasis reveals TMF’s true colors: they are not interested in reconciliation, but in psychological comfort and ecclesial segregation and hence the continual reactivation of a prejudice that needs to die altogether.

    Not in the Church of Jesus Christ, if we have anything to say about it… Which we do

    You and your children can do better. “scroll to the bottom” of this page to discover Even More Love. http://notalllikethat.org/

    ABOUT ST. HILDEGARD’S

    St. Hildegard’s of the Blue Ridge is a deeply ecumenical spiritual community dedicated to the recovery and development of new-old ways of being Christ to one another, rooted in embodied, contemplative, Earth-honoring and life-Loving liturgy. We pray that our worship may grow compassionately up and out of the immanent and intimate, wild and verdant Heart of the Universe, known everywhere, in all times and places, as God, the Great Mystery who is also our voluptuous and delicious Beloved, in the tradition of our patron saint Hildegard of Bingen, and in the living lineage of Jesus of Nazareth, our Friend and Lover. St. Hildegard’s is a non-creedal Christian tradition welcoming all who seek to grow in the boundary-annihilating Love of God, self, and neighbor with all of their heart, mind, soul, and strength. Following the original, radically egalitarian practice of Jesus, everyone is welcome at God’s table, as, together, we co-celebrate the Eucharist. As with all people, St. Hildegard’s unequivocally and joyfully welcomes gays and lesbians into the full life of our circle.
