Thank you to our Briarwood Retreat Center/Briarwood Leadership Center Director Robert Smith and Remy Remmers for attending the Transgender Day of Remembrance service at Galileo Church (a mission congregation of the Disciples of Christ) in Ft. Worth on Wednesday Nov 20.
The realities of targeted violence against all of the LGBTQIA+ community is undeniable. The violence against, and rates of suicide within, the Trans community are staggering and tragic. You can learn more here from Reconciling Works and here from GLAAD to educate yourself. As people of faith who are committed to inclusion and justice, it is important that we are aware of and working for the visibility of those on the margins. Thank you both for your witness. #NTNL #InMissionTogether
