It’s a New Year!

new-year-146bLast year, we witnessed and testified to the acceptance of the New Jersey Association declaring itself Open and Affirming.  That was a long process that was very rewarding.  We also fellowshipped, ate together, and provide a variety of resources for your local churches. We also helped churches found a Rainbow Cafe, an LGBTQ youth support group, in local New Jersey UCC churches.

This year, we have opportunities to help local congregations pursue the Open and Affirming process and to help churches who are already ONA to find a voice for justice.

As we begin the New Year, let me ask you, what would you like to see us promote, foster, or help you with?  Let’s be attentive to the ONA conversation as best as we are able.
