As people of faith and a Reconciling in Christ congregation, our support of the LGBTQIA+ community is more critical than ever. Please join us at the 2022 ABQ Pride Parade on Saturday, June 11!
Festivities were held at EXPO New Mexico June 9-11, the PRIDE Parade was on 10 June. We had a booth at PRIDEfest in the EXPO. Juli Owen and Beth Neer coordinated and we had a
few volunteering opportunities for those interested. First we had help creating the items we handed out at the booth. We had a variety of items to choose from, picture to color, and bags. Hope Neer gave a presentation about current events that are affecting the LGBTQ+ community during the Education Hour on May 1. She will held a Question and Answer session during that time as well. Bring your curiosity and compassion, all are welcome to any of these events. https://www.abqpride.com/

What is Reconciling in Christ?
The Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Program is for congregations, synods, colleges, seminaries, and other Lutheran organizations. Lutheran communities that publicly welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are accepted onto the Reconciling in Christ Roster which now exceeds 813 settings. Most groups start the process of consideration by engaging in a study program or series of educational meetings. Hearing the experiences of LGBT people and their families often creates greater understanding and insights.
