Giving God Thanks and Praise : Aiyisha's Father's Love
Family, just catching up with myself and wanted to pass along this article on Aiyisha's suicide. Giving God thanks and praise that her father, a PCUSA Pastor, comes out loud and strong about his love of his daughter and declaration against homophobia and heterosexism.
Pray for me that I know the next and best way to reach out to Aiyisha's parents (and grandparents and aunts and cousins who are members of my home congregation). Since I am staying the course with the PCUSA church, I vowed to call Aiyisha's full name before preaching. I kept my preaching appointment this past Sunday and called for a moment of silence in her memory.
What next? I will to be her voice until we meet again.
