As we begin Pride Month, we witness to the divine origins of creation in all its wondrous diversity. The Gospel of John proclaims that not one thing came into being apart from the Son, that every human being is therefore a precious gift from God. We believe that no human being exists apart from God’s loving, creating hand. While many voices are raised in opposition to and condemnation of LGBTQIA+ people, we affirm the personhood of each individual, complete with and in their gender and sexual identity. We especially witness to the truth of trans individuals of all ages and affirm their right to live in the fullest expression of who God created them to be: one of the many and beautiful manifestation of divine imagination and will. We are committed to being a safe place for LGBTQIA+ persons. You are seen; you are loved; you are affirmed.

About the Event
Starting June 1, the Thursday Matthew 25 group will begin meeting at Metropolis at 5:30 PM again. This time, Lois will lead the group in a discussion of the book ‘Subversive Jesus’ by Craig Greenfield. She will have four copies available the week before, so feel free to drop by and pick up a copy. It’s also available on Hoopla from the library in e-book form. This book is a testament to living out the call to radically love our neighbor. While it might not be possible to do all that the author has, we can take lessons on how to incorporate this unconditional love into our daily life. Join us in this exciting and challenging journey.
