I want to wish any and all my readers a happy Christmas. I am signing off for this year because I am moving to England.
Only for Christmas! I just feel the need to get away from the broken reed the Church in Wales seems to have become.
The St Asaph diocese continually emphasises Bishop Gregory’s queer views that harp continually on the doings of his LGBT chaplain to the exclusion of everyone else. Across the river, in Bangor Cathedral, Bishop Andy announced his separation from his wife, also a priest.
+Gregory’s ad says it “provides a safe, sacred space for our LGBTQIA friends.”
My village church used to be a safe, sacred space for everyone. We shared our stories and our lives after every service, we explored our faith in Bible Study groups, we enjoyed many get togethers, from Bingo to Quizzes to Xmas carol sing-a-longs and we did NOT discriminate.
It does not have to be like this. Come ON, all ye Faithful. What did God tell Noah the rainbow represented? “….my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh.”
Between me and you and every living creature.
