Good morning everyone! A small group got together at our home this past Sunday and as always, it was wonderful! If you are on the fence about attending, I want to encourage you to just try it. It is such a beautiful place to come and talk openly, to be loved on, and to be accepted just as you are and where you are! My husband and I are Christian but our home is a gathering place for all. We have had people from all walks of life and I cannot tell you how much joy that brings to me. I will be posting an October date soon. Please, consider coming. You are safe here. You will not be revealed to people who would harm you. It is private and welcoming.
For any who struggle with loneliness through the holidays...... We will be hosting a Black Sheep Thanksgiving and also a Black Sheep Christmas. The holidays used to be so hard for me to face. Nobody here has to be alone. Bring the family and join people who want to welcome you and spend time with you. Let us show you what "loving your neighbor" really looks like! I wish nothing more than for this group to grow so large that we need to move it into a larger place. I already have things in the works to vary the locations where we meet. You are not alone because we are here and we will not abandon you!
What I learn every time we have gathered. This work we are doing here on the forum is necessary. The sheer volume of abuse and the people left bleeding in their wake is astounding to me. The people disowned and kept from family relationships is beyond what you can imagine. Things are starting to happen and it is urgent that we keep the momentum going. There are people to rescue and many who come out of that broken and abusive denomination will need us more than you know. Remember one word when dealing with them....LOVE. They need to experience what that should look like and who better than us, because we have an understanding that others don't have.
