I am straight and I want the church to know that I am very thankful for the true love that the Affirming United Church brings into communities. I am grateful for those who have stood in truth and love for all of God’s children. Even though there are still those who are not okay with it, shining God’s love for all and being the beacon of light helps me accept those parts of myself others may not be okay with. Those parts that maybe have been judged at another church, for example, I was told I was going to hell because I have tattoos.
