Dear United Church,
I worry that this Iridesce apology project may not adequately reach sufficient people to result in a total convincing of United congregations to lean further toward an “Affirming” attitude.
I say this mainly because I was sad to hear today that only 6% of United Churches are officially “Affirming”. Hence, I see that there is still a very long and uphill road ahead if we are to reach a point of influencing ourselves, our communitieis and the world to becoming more cognisant of LGBT and other social injustice issues.
Nevertheless, I am encouraged to see that actions are being taken, no matter how small since with faith, hope and love we CAN make some difference rather than none.
