G-d is Leading You to Love

As The Way Forward Commission continues to pray and wait to 'see where G-d is leading us', Christians following the way of Christ know that the answer is always 'love'. Christ leads us to love.

Whenever the church enshrines hatred toward any group, as it has towards the GLBT community for the last some fifty years, one can be sure we are not following Christ.

I am disgusted by these Way Forward Commission reports. GLBT people being murdered, and commiting suicide in despair, due to Christian hatred, yet the Commission is taking its dear sweet time to make a decision whether to love the GLBT community or not.

Notable Quotes   


     "Both the physical and spiritual well-being of our communities here and in the future really depend on how well we are connected to one another. Our isolation, our disconnection from one another only makes us that much more vulnerable to the forces of evil."

– Rami Nashashibi, a Muslim community organizer on the south side of Chicago, quoted by National Public Radio. 



     "We need to be gentle with ourselves and give ourselves permission to grieve continued injustice and denominational harm. Lent is maybe the best time of the liturgical year to pause and sit with whatever we are feeling or not feeling right now, especially before we make big decisions. It brings to mind what the disciples might have gone through in those days between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, when maybe they could affirm there would be more to the story but did not yet know what new life was going to come forth."

– T. C. Morrow in a sermon, "Stay the Course," given Sunday, March 17 at Foundry UMC, Washington, D.C. Republished with permission from her Facebook page.
