Today, Sunday, my family and I attended the local UU congregation again. Today it was special because the theme was Our Loving Family. There were 2 pastoral sermons; one talked about his lesbian daughter in Portland, and the other talked about how the bible does NOT say that homosexuality is wrong (loved that one). Then a couple of UU members had a chance to talk too. At the end we got to hear from a group of college-aged students who are visiting 19 colleges across the country (mostly religious or military based schools), and trying to raise awareness that God loves all His children, regardless of sexuality. Here's a like to their website:
And here's a link to their sponsoring organization:
So for the next couple of days, these kids are going to be visiting the one and only BYU, to create dialogue, if nothing else. It was really fun to hear their stories, and meet people who are active about something they believe in.
