Grieve. Love. Advocate.

As communities across the world respond, pray, and speak out against the terrorist attack in Orlando, I wondered what I, as an individual, should do. So I read and listen to the words from my LGBTQ brothers and sisters. I hear deep pain, I hear a call to prayer, I hear a frustration and anger […]
