Unity in Jesus

Yes, LISTEN TO HOLY SPIRIT !!!!! "OPEN" needs to be a VERB, AN ACTION, before it can be used as an ADJECTIVE. We need to actually open our minds, our hearts, our eyes........and see our lesbian and gay sisters and brothers around us, among us. We are your brothers and sisters, your cousins, your uncles and aunts, your sons and daughters, and, yes, sometimes your mothers and fathers. We were baptized and attended Sunday School, Youth Group, Worship Service, camp, choir, and often played the organ or piano. In reading Scripture, we never found a passage with Jesus condemning us for our sexual orientation. We understood the order to be faithful to a spouse, but we NEVER saw a condemnation of who we are. Blessed are those of us who grew up before those hurtful passages were put into The Book of Discipline !!!!!!!!!!!
Restore our denomination to its original Jesus-following, inclusive self.
