NEW STORY: CHandra ryder, Rain city church

Ophelia Hu Kinney

Writer & Activist

I'm a Christian woman married to a Christian woman. I've been a part of churches that give life, and I've been a part of churches that take life. I've long been an advocate for the absence of deception in churches - especially how we do or do not walk in line with the Spirit in welcoming LGBTQ people. The church is charged to make God known. The first step is to remove the illusion of welcome and build a truly inclusive church.
