This morning, my home church held its annual meeting during which the congregation voted to become an Open and Affirming community. It was an important vote, held after a lengthy investigation and exploration and discussion about what it would mean for our church. The church voted unanimously, to "make a public covenant of welcome into their full life and ministry to persons of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions." These flowers sat on the altar, and a visiting choir soloist sang "It is Well with My Soul".. just a beautiful day on so many levels.
This is my hundred forty-fourth daily drawing. Thank you for your continued interest.
