When we as people of faith remember that God’s love for us is transformational and not transactional, we are liberated to create sacred space for all to be welcomed.
Since 1974, ReconcilingWorks: Lutherans for Full Participation has been working to deepen and expand the welcome, inclusion, celebration, and advocacy of people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions in the Lutheran church.
As millions of people celebrate PRIDE season in June, ReconcilingWorks invites you to explore how you can deepen and expand the ways in which you and your faith community create space for the love of God to transform your community. Consider discerning how you and your community welcomes, includes, celebrates, and advocates to people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. ReconcilingWorks has fabulous and diverse resources for outreach and education; please visit www.reconcilingworks.org.
This PRIDE season let’s work together, so no one whom God has named beloved feel as if they are unwelcome. Let’s work together to share boldly that God’s table is for all!
