This article by WORLD magazine writer, Andree Seu Peterson, reflects my heart and explains why I’m motivated to become even more involved in Christian activism.
Sons of old Congregationalists became Unitarians. Sons of Unitarians became social workers. Children of social workers became LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or transsexual, queer or questioning, intersex, ally or asexual ).

They entice unsteady souls. … These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm. For them the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved. For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption” (2 Peter 2:12-19).
