Fun, creative, engaging…the neighbors and the kids are out on the streets looking for something to do.
Excitement is in the air.
Festivals, celebrations, music late into the night are all part of summer…but it’s not all fun and games. Summertime allows for longer work days in the gardens, and the lack of rain, invites us to do projects we put off all winter (I’m reminding myself the roofer is coming on Wednesday morning to replace that rotted board.)
Today we gathered at Pride Fest to celebrate a work we’ve let slide through the years; to proclaim to the world God’s Love for all…to have fun and enjoy the many ways God has made us. Also, to show the world, which has gone backwards lately, that God has shown us a way forward…a way to engage each other in loving wholeness.
These summer days allow us to show our thankfulness to God for such diversity.
God bless you church for being open and affirming, not just of people who are of the LGBTQ community, but also to a God that is still speaking love and reconciliation for all.
Shine brightly sun, so we can show the world what love truly looks like.
Amen (Let it be so)
