MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Pride Month is now officially over, and I hope everyone could acknowledge their journey and celebrate what God has created you to be. Whether that was attending or even taking part in a pride parade or event, or just being able to reflect on your personal journey in learning to understand yourself better. Whether you are part of the LGBTQIA+ Rainbow community, a parent or loved one or an ally who loves unconditionally, it has been a journey to get to where you are at this moment. It is never easy to go against the flow of family and society, but you are not alone on this journey. We have a rich history of those who came before us to pave the way for the road we are traveling on. Together, we can work to widen and make the road more solid ahead of us.

FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

How often do you see news flashes, read articles, or are encouraged to reject Pride activities? Too often, those news flashes, articles, and personal encouragements flow from “Christian” sources. They may be news flashes on a church website; maybe an email or instant message from your faith, sharing negative comments regarding a Pride event; and, most blatantly, many groups of Christians physically gather and protest violently and loudly with their own flags and negative signs.

I was in Lexington, Kentucky, recently with Floyd Poenitz and several other Kinship members to create awareness about Kinship at the CALLED Convention for Adventist pastors in North America. On the whole, it was a positive experience with lots of wonderful interactions.

MENSAGEM DO PRESIDENTE

Eu tenho por hábito observar as pessoas. Isso é uma confissão! Não de um jeito assustador ou invasivo, muito menos perseguidor. Eu simplesmente acho as pessoas fascinantes. Gosto de conhecê-las, mas também aprecio observar as pessoas em situações e contextos sociais, a forma com interagem e/ou reagem. Acho que pode ser algo que herdei de minha origem alemã. Alguns de vocês podem já ter visto a composição das casas em uma tradicional vila alemã, as casas ficam bem próximas da rua, e no segundo ou terceiro andar da casa há uma janela aberta, e você pode ver uma mulher ou um homem idoso de pé, sentado ou inclinando-se para ver algo ou contemplando a vida e vendo o mundo passar.

The UnClobber Outreach Project in 2021

UnClobber tells of the personal journey of Pastor Colby Martin as he researches the Bible’s six “clobber texts”—the only places in Scripture that might plausibly address sexual orientation—and comes to a new understanding of how the church can relate to members of the LGBTQIA+ community from a biblical and compassionate framework. Pastor Colby isn't the first to learn this, but his story and biblical interpretation communicates the message in a deep, balanced, and accessible way.
