Chicago kicked off its official Pride Month Celebrations this weekend with Pride Fest, and throughout the next week we’ll be celebrating by sharing stories from LGBTQ+ members of our beLOVEd community. As a community, we believe DIVERSITY of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, and religion demonstrates the most glorious aspects of God—the multiplicity of our unity is celebrated through our differences. Today we share and celebrate Rainbow’s story.
This week’s #WednesdayWisdom, as we kick off our “We Are Transformers” series for September, comes from Emmet Fox on conquering all difficulties with love.
Today’s #WednesdayWisdom comes from Shunryu Suzuki, a Sōtō Zen monk and teacher who helped popularize Zen Buddhism in the United States and is renowned for founding the first Buddhist monastery outside Asia, the San Francisco Zen Center.
This week’s #WednesdayWisdom comes from Ram Dass in his book, Journey of Awakening, on the individual and highly personal experience that is the spiritual journey.
