Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Adore LA (Los Angeles, CA).
Their welcome statement reads:
“ADORE LA is a queer community of faith experiencing God in unconventional ways, and commits to being radically inclusive of all genders and sexualities.
As people on journeys of faith, we believe that everyone is made in the image of God and beloved. ADORE LA commits to be a community the lifts up LGBTQ+ people and combats the dehumanization of people based on gender or sexuality. We commit to be a community that welcomes people who wish to be authentically and vulnerably themselves in community and wish for recognition for their full identity.
Believing that all are one in Christ Jesus, and aware that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer persons have been excluded from membership in some congregations, we welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons, as well as those who may have been excluded because of other human distinctions, such as race or economic status.
We thus affirm that this welcome includes all people. We pledge to ourselves and to all others that we will strive to live as a reconciling people, in our life together and in our outreach to the world.”
