FLGBTQC Mid Winter Gathering
13-16 Feb 2009
at Camp Adams
The Spirit was very much with this gathering. Many came from hundreds and some from thousands of miles to be together with Friends who would know us in more aspects of ourselves than are perhaps known in any other group.
It is reassuring to be among Friends who know that we too are holy children, are created in God's image, and are beloved by God. As Peter came to realize, God sees through all outward appearance to the spiritual beings that we are at our eternal core.
Acts 10:34-35 (Amplified Bible)
34And Peter opened his mouth and said: Most certainly and thoroughly I now perceive and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons,
35But in every nation he who venerates and has a reverential fear for God, treating Him with worshipful obedience and living uprightly, is acceptable to Him and sure of being received and welcomed [by Him].
