New service of worship and sermon notes for IDAHOT, May 17 2017

Affirm Unjted/ S’affirmer Ensemble is delighted to launch an original service of worship and sermon notes by member and activist Ruth Wood. The service honours the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, and is fully shared with our partner, the United Church of Canada.

Ruth is a retired Designated Lay Minister – Recognized. Ruth is openly transgender and is currently serving as a part time chaplain at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON, Canada, where she has been specifically asked to reach out to the LGBTQ community on campus. Ruth will be retiring from chaplaincy work in May 2017. (Perhaps the retirement will actually stick this time.) She has been a thoughtful and important resource to AU/SE for a number of years.

The worship is posted as the first item on our newly revised and updated worship and reflections page. Please have a look through the page, and use this service widely.
