Can we wait and discuss Samantha Field’s article next week? I’d like to spend some time reflecting together about what has happened in Orlando, and perhaps share in a brief liturgy of silence and prayer.
Please prepare by reading a few short items to help contextualize our shared time:
- The Stonewall Riots (origin of Pride Month): en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stonewall_riots
- Reflections on meeting needs of victims in Orlando: www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jun/12/gay-men-blood-donation-orlando-shooting-victims-florida
- Possible action items: ashleighpenrod.com/2016/06/12/what-you-can-do-right-now/
Thanks, all. I appreciate your flexibility.
