A difficult day for me to be #Anglican in Canada. Our national church synod yesterday decided our definition of marriage will not include same sex couples.
The pain of our LGBTQ2S+ members who had spoken so inspiringly during the debate was heart breaking.
This morning the tears have not ended but have changed as those same members rallied the assembly to sing praises to God who is love and calls us to love. I'm hopeful for the next discussions and prayers.
I'm a bit dismayed by how long it has been since I've posted.
I've tried to think of this space as a place to reflect, to muse and share beauty.
I have no doubt that I've known those things in abundance and variety recently but illness, the demands of daily life and a touch of malaise have kept the fleeting thoughts from finding their way here.
I'm hoping a new routine with the Spring/Summer will help me catch the fleeting moments.
Happy election day fellow Albertans!!
Another opportunity to choose who oppresses us for the next 4 years
Honestly though I love voting and do try to be as actively involved politically as possible between the polling opportunities.
I'm also looking forward to tonight's coverage far more than the GOT season premier.
Thank you pixelfed for starting my day with a laugh!
@pixelfed Loving everything about pixelfed but I can't seem to find the search anymore...
Though I have been searching for it.
Feb 13th the https://moosehidecampaign.ca is hosting their day of fasting. I will be joining the fast and pledge to end violence with my community here as we gather for ceremony and fasting.,
One of the most important things that you can do to help end violence against Women and Children is to promote gender equity, healthy relationships, and positive ideas of masculinity by speaking out against gender-based violence.
As a young and inexperienced seminarian I was so blessed to spend 4 months living with a vibrant, brilliant and faithful 86yr old Marjorie Pearce.
She welcomed me as family, shared her life stories, hopes and fears with a vulnerability that was holy and inspiring.
12 full and rich years later she has died.
Rest eternal grant unto her O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon her as it shone through her.
