An open letter to the church from an aware teen

It seems light years from me now, but I know one day Lily will be a teen. I’m just glad that it’s at a time when her gay friends (and who knows, maybe she) will have more acceptance in their lives for who they are.

As this writer mentions more than once, her generation has very strong bullshit detectors–of course, a hallmark of the New Kids. As you read this, you can feel her strength, her presence, her Crystal heart. Sometimes it seems like the hateful voices are drowning everyone out.  I am glad she and others like her will be the leaders in a decade or two.
