Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Ascension Lutheran Church (San Diego, CA).
Their welcome statement reads:
“We believe that God tenderly and fiercely loves the whole world, and has revealed this life-transforming love in the person of Jesus Christ. We provide a safe and loving place for people to explore, question, and deepen their spirituality. We are also an active congregation with a place for people to come and share their unique gifts in loving community together. We find strength in the knowledge that God loves all people as we celebrate a wide variety of diverse cultures, backgrounds and perspectives. This is why we welcome all people: those with faith and those who doubt. We welcome people of all ethnicities and races, nationalities, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and relationship statuses, including cohabiting couples, older singles or divorced people. We welcome people of all body types and skin colors. We welcome active military and veterans, as well as the poor and food insecure. We welcome people of differing physical abilities and mental abilities, including those who struggle with addiction or mental illness. You are deeply loved by God, and we welcome you with God’s extended hands of mercy.”
