Links and documents from the service
As I mentioned in today’s service, heather has a blog where they (they/them/their are heather’s pronouns) discuss some of their story in more depth, the link is below. The Reverend Amanda Currie’s pastoral letter is also below and, depending on how your browser manages pdfs it will open or download it when you click the button.
As I also mentioned, heather and I are very willing to and interested in talking to you regarding any of the issues addressed in heather’s blog, the Moderator’s Pastoral Letter, or regarding the 2SLGQBTI community.

There is something about humility, it frequently raises our hackles, just like when our dog sees virtually anything with four legs.* We find “humility” as problematic as “meek” mostly because we assume both words are functional equivalents of “doormat.”
Humility has very little to do with letting people walk over you. Humility, as C. S. Lewis says in the quotation to the left is more about how we think than what we let other people do.
The sermon today tries to help us see our model of humility isn’t a bully’s victim but rather Jesus Christ.
* All in all Auggie is a wonderful dog but he really doesn’t seem to like anything with four legs, at least in the city, we haven’t exposed him to, say a cow.
