Something I’ve realized in coming back to the church during a significant spiritual transformation is that even thought this church does not currently acknowledge my existence as a transgender person and though one might infer that it has hurt me quite a bit, this rather flawed church is my church too. The church belongs to every single person that God ministers to-in particular the doubters, the downtrodden, the forgotten, and the sufferers. It belongs to those who stand up for justice and face oppression when they resolve to become a voice for the voiceless.

Meditative Question: 

How does my own experience of oppression make me committed to raising my voice for the disempowered?
