30 Days of Gratitude Day 1

1 November, 2015 Posted by liascholl

Today I am grateful for all those who have gone before…

All Saint’s Day always reminds me of Barbara Watts–a minister, chaplain, and friend who passed a few years ago. She was the first woman minister ordained by my home congregation. She liked outrageous outfits and matching (fabulous) shoes.

She was a role model. And, in so many ways, a saint. Flawed, like all of us. Fiercely feminine. And so loving. She taught me the power of prayer, the niceness of notes, and the supremacy of song.

I miss you, Barbie. Thank you.

    Lia practices radical acceptance for those who the church has vilified and shamed. It's not just something she preaches, but something that she really tries to reflect in her life.

    Sometimes, because of her views, people disagree with her and write comments that seem hateful to the very people to whom she's offering acceptance. These comments are moderated.
