God is Doing a New Thing...
It's hard to know exactly when the Spirit began to move this congregation toward becoming a More Light Congregation. It may have been 30+ years ago when one of our families lost a young, gay man to suicide. Three to five years ago, our conversations began to increase. Many prayed. Many talked. Many "came out." God worked.
Then God began to work in more visible ways. God gifted our congregation with a faithful family. Two moms and their children worshipped regularly, prayed daily, participated actively in the ministry of the congregation, and gave generously. God worked.
Conversations became more public. Relationships had been built that removed much of the "fear factor" cultivated by our culture. A committee prayerfully took the first "official" step. People began talking, praying for those who 'weren't there," and staying in relationship with all congregants. God worked.
Our discernment process now takes us into a new identity, that of More Light Congregation. We are excited. We are committed. We are eager to learn from and embrace fellow travelers in this journey of faith formation.
God will continue to be at work in us all, because what we also know is the call to More Light also reinforces that all people are welcome…all races, political persuasions, economic circumstances. We are all children of God, being shaped into disciples as we practice faith together.
