Humans: we are relational beings. We are made to be connected with one another, to live interdependently. Yet, we can be quick to exclude and erase people because of their identities. Here, we affirm that you can bring your whole self into this space where you are seen, affirmed, and loved. Today and every day, we commit ourselves to centering those whose lives are pushed into the margins because the truth is: all of who you are is a blessing.

Seen. Affirmed. Loved.

“We are not what other people say we are. We are who we know ourselves to be, and we are what we love. That’s OK.” — Laverne Cox

Each of us enters this place with different needs. Some hearts are full of gratitude and joy. May we rejoice with them. Some hearts ache with sorrow. May our presence and compassion bring them comfort. Some hearts are searching. May the knowledge that we too are searching restore their hope and give them courage. May we, in our common need, give strength to each other as we share our joys, lighten each others’ burdens, and support our caring community.
