#GC2019 – Blessed are the Queer

Blessed are the wanderers,
Seeking affirmation.

Blessed are the worshipers,
Praying from closets,
Pulpits, pews, and hardship.

Blessed are the lovers of leaving –
Leaving family and familiarity,
Leaving tables
Where love is not being served.

Blessed are those who stay.

Blessed are those
Who hunger and thirst for justice –
For they will be satisfied.

Blessed are the queer
Disciples of Truth,
Living, breathing, sacred
Reflections of
Divine Love.
