Take Time to Listen

I  admire their patience and tolerance. Their stories make me feel sad, angry, guilty and humble.

I belong to a church that is part of a national group of 225 congregations called Mennonite Church Canada.  Recently a video was released that shares the experiences of LGBTQ people who are open and honest about their sexual identities and have continued to remain involved in their Mennonite Church Canada congregations. The national body does not officially sanction their lifestyle choices but some of the congregations in which they are active have become welcoming churches that accept LGBTQ people as members. 

These interviews were filmed in the pews of the Mennonite church buildings across Canada where the interviewees attend church. 

I invite you to take time to listen to them.  Just click on the words  Listening Church below.

    Thank you for bringing this to the attention of me and all other readers of your blog. This is a wonderful reminder of what God wants us to do – Love, Accept, Work together for Peace, Justice and so much more.
