We are Lutherans for full participation in the life of the church and the world!

ReconcilingWorks works for the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the Lutheran church and beyond.

Did you know that 7 out of every 10 millenials (ranging in age from 18 to 33) believe churches are alienating young adults by being too judgmental towards LGBT people?

WE THINK ONE IS TOO MANY!

Here is a story that one of our youth members shared with us at our assembly:

“BABY BLUE SHOES” Alex’s story

In 6th grade I had a pair of baby blue Converse shoes. I absolutely loved them because they matched perfectly with several outfits. My mom loved them on me as well. But every time I wore them to school, I would overhear negative comments in the hallway. People thought I wasn’t listening, but I heard every word. It finally got to a point where I couldn’t take all of the teasing anymore.

Hearing those words every day felt just as bad as being physiclly bullied. I had to stop wearing them. After my mom drove away from the school bus stop one day, I reached into my bag and swapped my baby blue shoes for a pair of neutral black shoes. This became my regular practice. I needed to feel safe."

Stories like Alex’s show us that the need to create safe spaces in church and society is real!

How will you help us bridge this gap—the gap between the world as it is and a world where everyone is welcomed?

Today, you have the chance to pitch in and and help us create more safe spaces where LGBT people can THRIVE!
