2012 Transgender Day of Remembrance

Share your light

A Prayer: Whole Love, Holy Life
for the 2012 Transgender Day of Remembrance

Creator
You love roses
But not only their full-blown beauty
You also love the tiny ferns unfurling
on the forest floor
And the red salvia blooming
for bee and hummingbird
Enough to have dreamed them
and created them
and us.

What are we, that you take notice of us
call us a little lower than the angels?
Such love is too wonderful for us.
We reject it. And each other.

We put each other in boxes.
black/white
jew/greek
slave/free
straight/queer
male/female

And then bash the boxes
until the blood runs.

Forgive us.
But don’t just forgive us.
Transform us.

So that we can see the beauty in our differences.
So that we can all live into what it is to be whole, and holy.
So that we can know ourselves and each other
fearfully and wonderfully made.
All genders, all loves, all loved.
