Troubles of Love and Hate…continued (With love)

Posted: July 8, 2015 in Uncategorized

Okay, continuing on from the previous post I having been reading more of the weekend article about LGBT tensions with faith and church.

The brave and bold reverend from the UK I mentioned was Sally Hitchiner-a wonderful young lady of faith, and yes also gay. She works with Diverse Church in UK, and they attended London Pride recently. Many LGBT people really seemed to react well to the unexpected support, and message of God’s love waiting for them.

Diverse Church handed out leaflets stating- ‘We’re sorry if anyone has ever told you that God doesn’t love you. God loves everyone’.

This just simply warmed my heart so much. Simple honest love spread out to all.

One slogan seen around the area read ‘Queerly Beloved’ as joyful music played loudly at the Pride march.

We have some great supporters of LGBT and gay rights  from our world of faith here in the UK now, including Ms Hitchiner, Vicky Beeching-evangelical musician/theologian, Steve Chalke-social activist/leader of Oasis network, but also Tony Campolo has shown support.

The UK CoE Anglican church of course remains tongue-tied and hesitant, only just about managing to get to grips with the problematic (but not really) issue of female Bishops recently.

Must must listen, show love, respect, and listen to God, not simply our possible fearful or confused conservative cultures of old.
