Apology and the Community of Concern

Dear United Church,

The thing that hurt the most was the way our minister, in Ottawa, a member of the Community of Concern, manipulated my mother. He used his power to hurt our family. His charisma and charm drew her in and created a crisis for her — that lasted the remainder of her life even as she experienced dementia.

Dear United Church,

the thing I want you to apologize for is allowing Community of Concern ministers to continue in the United Church after the United Church voted to affirm those in the LGBTQ community and take a stand against the hate/exclusion.

Dear United Church,

I want to thank the United Church Observer for the great job it does in educating on this and many other social justice topics.
