Festive, Just, and Affirming
June is Pride Month and all through the month we will lift up the gifts that LGBTQX people bring to the church. Notions of family, honesty, strength, and joy are all ways the church has recieved gifts from our LGBTQX friends and members.

When the Spirit moves ahead of us into strange territory, how do we rise to meet it? Where does the church need to "let go" so that the Spirit may lead?
