To members of our LGBTQ+ community here’s a message from St Andrew’s Rev. Hillary MacDonald reminding you that you are a beloved child of God and that God’s love is for each and every single one of us. May you be reminded of that love, surrounded by that love, and held in that love. Hillary chose to video this message after The Vatican issued a document earlier this week (June 10, 2019) that rejects gender change.
Hillary published this message on Facebook on Wednesday, June 12, and it has since been shared 25 times including by The United Church of Canada’s page and a group called Progressive Methodists. So far, approximately 840 people have clicked on the video. As Brenda McKellar wrote as she shared the video: “Proud to be part of this community.”
