"Fanciful hopes that things “will just change” can no longer be tolerated. Active ideas and critical eyes must be developed. We can “play nice” if we want the status quo to continue. Yet if we are convicted by love, if we actually think love changes the world, then we must begin living love."
"If we want to be in deeper relationship with God we must be in deeper relationship with humanity. Using Scripture as a weapon to beat down others could not be more contradictory to the lives God calls us to live."
"...if we are images of God then every time we hate on people that aren’t the “majority” we hate on God. My LGBTQ siblings reflect the divine, and as one called into transformative love by Christ I must live that out honestly and authentically."
"I thought how you’ve given us all the love we ever need – we just need to learn to love each other. You’ve given us a lot God, and I’m thankful for that. I guess only humans can make the decision to take responsibility for changing the world one day, one relationship at a time."
"The Good News isn’t the proselytizing narrative entitled, “Be Ye Converted, Lest You Burn.” The Good News is a story of love and grace, exile and redemption that brings us into deeper communion with our humanity, our families, our communities, and God."
