Rank #16: A Quick Response to the United Methodist Church

Podcast cover

Yesterday, the United Methodist Church voted to strengthen its ban on LGBTQ+ clergy and same-sex marriages, a difficult blow to so many of us who have been fighting for inclusion.

This morning, a friend sent me this passage of scripture: Ezekiel 34 and it felt so pertinent. This is not a hot take but instead a reading of a sacred text as a reminder.

Give yourselves room to grieve and rage today.
