Today I had the Privilege of Experiencing a Beautiful Event - @cltpride - Parade with My Church - @watershedclt - For those from my Spiritual heritage I’ll share the following story. .
Circa 1997 while attending @southwesternchristian Dr Garnett Pike shared the following...it was Life Changing!
He told of a Pastor that had a close friend that left the church because of identifying as LGBTQ. The Pastor for years tried to get the friend back in church; inviting him to multiple events. However, one day the friend asked the Pastor to attend a Pride Parade in Seattle. The Pastor had a crisis; attend or reject his friend. The Pastor decided that if he wanted his friend to come to a Church event then the Pastor should be willing to go to the friend’s event.
What the Pastor learned upon arrival was that he was not just attending but walking In the Parade. At this moment in the story you could hear moans, chuckles, and an uncomfortable noise from the students in the class (All Pastors). .
As the story continued the Pastor walking in the Parade experienced “christians” hurling insults and using scriptures as weapons. The LGBTQ paraders began to sing “Jesus Loves Me” and at that moment the Pastor asked...If Jesus was there; what group would he be Standing With.
Back in class - You could have heard a Pin Drop! As we say from our background - Conviction set in. .
Jesus - Always - stood with the marginalized and today we walked with our LGBTQ brothers and sisters in the hope and prayer that One Day they are No Longer Marginalized...why? Cause Jesus Loves...Us🌈

I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever you see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful---
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is a part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.
I went on a hike today with my mom as sort of a self care Sunday thing. Went a lot further this time and got to see a lot more of the trail but I did go a little slower and it was a lot warmer. Fortunately there was a lot of shade from the trees.
I'm really enjoying hiking far enough out that all you hear is nature. I enjoyed that with kayaking too. It's very relaxing to get away from civilization and just hear water, wind and animals.
I'm going to make sure I spend more time hiking but next time I'll find a new trail.
And I gotta say this bra sits and fits perfectly and I still love the prominent rainbow lol. You should check out @sveltebelle and use my code kristenww to save 20%
