To those who practice the tradition of Christianity…
If we are to celebrate a tradition that follows the creation story, we must celebrate the the fact that the God of creation saw each of those creations as “good.” Every drop of water, each ray of light, the darkness, textures, colors and of course life, was indeed “good.”
This creative, loving and living God that we celebrate, challenges and invites us to see this goodness for ourselves. This perfection, this beauty, and this wonder that is in itself our truest image of God incarnate.
In our manhood, womanhood, motherhood and fatherhood; in our friendships and relationships, straightness and gayness; in our our blackness, our whiteness, and sameness and our difference, we see God…
and it is indeed good.
Be proud of who you are, because yes, YOU are good.
A classmate of mine’s response in regards to National Coming Out Day, and ‘The Christian Case for Celebration’.
Super proud to have friends such as these, to go to a seminary such as this, and to be the creation of a God who is love.
