[This Week at First Church] Creating the Kingdom: Multiply

From today's This Week at First Church:
This year’s Stewardship theme is Creating the Kingdom of Heaven. What does Heaven look like to you? Who is there, and what are they doing? What are you willing to give up, and give, so you can live in that Heaven, here and now?
As I said on facebook,
"Creating the Kingdom of Heaven."

I have SO MANY thoughts about this! Okay, they're more about the Radical Queer Church of My Heart than about e.g. economic justice, though there is some overlap -- like Megan Rohrer at the Transgender Religious Leaders Summit talked about oral history projects with queer (mostly trans) homeless youth.
Yeah, I spent one weekend at the 2012 Transcending Boundaries Conference and the next weekend at the 2012 Transgender Religious Leaders Summit and now I have a lot of energy to do educationy activisty type stuff.
