This is everything. Sunday has become my favorite day of the week which is surprising because it used to be one of the days I was dragged out of bed to be at church all day with people who I loved so much until they discovered I was gay and I lost them. So many people are broken by the “church,” but often times it’s those in the LGBTQ community who experience the pain the most. Don’t misunderstand my post - I’m not saying LGBTQ people are broken. Instead, this is a call to those who claim the label of “Christian” and yet fall far short of actually living the message of Christ. I have a news flash for them and for you, if even the word “Jesus” makes you cringe or roll your eyes - you, exactly how you are, are wholly loved and accepted by God. You are not broken. You are not unworthy. You are the most perfected creation of an infinite power in this universe and beyond. So, reclaim your Sunday, especially if you have been broken by the church. Remember that Jesus was a revolutionary, liberal, political, all-loving man who taught us to live our lives with so much love, with so much grace, with so much conviction that even the most broken felt like they deserved a seat at the table. Be the change you want to see in this world. ✨ RP: @thehappygivers #progressivechristianity #christianity #soulsunday #soulsundays #lgbtq #lgbtqia #loveislove #quotestoliveby

Don't complain about the rain- the 🌂 is your responsibility. #stayundertheshadow Isaiah 43:2 "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze." Parallel- Psalm 91:1-4, 9-16 "Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation."
