Our Advent reflections for 2017 are premised on the understanding that until all people are free, no one is truly liberated. Work for LGBT justice is integrally bound to work for racial justice and the many other pursuits of justice and equality which intersect them. Each Sunday, an LGBTQ or Ally writer will reflect on this intersection of race, gender, and sexuality within the church and within our lives. We welcome you to join the conversation in the “Comments” section of each blog post.
