Psalm 71:1 In you, O LORD, have I taken refuge; let me never be ashamed.
We are in the midst of a vibrant time of growth in the Episcopal Church: People of color are speaking up, LGBTQ+ people are being accepted, and worship resources are becoming more diverse, culturally, linguistically, and theologically. As more underrepresented people become a part of the community and question the status quo, it can seem more like cacophony than harmony. But, as we listen to all of our songs sung at different times, in different tongues, in different styles, we find unity in Jesus, our consistent, foundational beat. In Jesus, we shall never, in eternity, be brought into the shame of confusion.
MOVING FORWARD: Celebrate the song of different voices in your community.
