Evangelical Lutheran Church in America pastor Michael Coffey penned a "prayer" for churches to use when celebrating "Pride Sunday."
A part of Rev. Coffey's prayer says:
"You revealed the fullness of your love
in Jesus of Nazareth,
who loved all persons in their human dignity,
who forgave us for our failure to see your image
in all genders, all sexualities, all colors,
who suffered in solidarity with all the rejected,
who inspires us now to celebrate love
in all its wonderful forms,
who fills us with pride and gratitude
for being born this way,
and for being made new in endless grace."
Rev. Michael Coffey is the author of a book titled “Renounce, Resist, Rejoice: Being Church in the Age of Trump.”
