Last week, my workplace held a session to reflect on what it means to be LGBT and to have faith. To think about God’s unlimited, intimate love for all of us – whoever we are. To give time to pray together and to reflect on what Jesus means to LGBT+ people.
I am privileged to work in such a place.
The prayer we said together, written by one of my colleagues, is here:
who in Jesus became flesh,
making desire holy
and giving our bodies grace,
bless us in all our longing,
and make us bringers of joy and justice
with all our touching and holding,
that we may be safely vulnerable
in intimate love and in shared community,
giving you glory
and fulfilling our humanity,
in Jesus’ name,
