Good morning, my name is Yolanda Eliott and I am the president of Seventh-day Adventist Kinship International. Today the Kinship Board kicks off Kinship Awareness Month. The theme for Kinship Awareness Month is, I exist. I belong.
I exist. There are LGBTIQ current and former Seventh-day Adventists who love the church and are sincere about bridging the gap between their faith and who God created them to be.
I belong. There exist LGBTIQ current and former Seventh-day Adventists who, already affirmed and loved by God, simply want a seat at the church's table.
This October we will share the incredible journey that shapes who we are as a community, where we came from, what we are doing, and what we are becoming.
We invite you this October to come alongside us on this journey, to find out what SDA Kinship is all about.
