Advent journal: queering peace


Queering Peace
all about truth

In isolation
finding freedom.

Against slurs
declaring our true names.

In judgment
creating self-definition.

Through condemnation
cultivating blessing.

Beyond rejection
receiving Love’s radical welcome.

Through accusations
hearing a different truth.

Against distaste and disgust
claiming beauty, light and heat.

Through harm intended and done
drawing forth healing and connection.

In grief
finding wholeness and strength.

Beyond bigotry
walking higher roads

Against doctrine
growing spirit strength

We are more than beautiful

We are more than strong

We are more than family

We are for each other and with each other

We are keeping the promises of Love

May we live into the peace
the world denies us
that we yet claim and construct
inherit and inhabit
our birthright and our covenant
with our Creator, Creativity, and all Creation.
