Following a semester of exploration on how UKirk Memphis might better stand for justice, equality, and hospitality, we decided to explore what it would mean to affiliate with More Light Presbyterians. The Rev. Ashley-McFaul Erwin guided us in a conversation on the history of MLP and the work they are doing today. It was clear after this conversation that our group wanted to make our commitment to affirming and embracing the LGBTQUIA+ community as visible as possible. We want to be a ministry where our LGBTQUIA+ siblings know that they will be unconditionally welcomed. We seek out the guidance and wisdom of MLP leadership in order to equip us with the resources and tools to do so. We look forward to the ways that our ministry might be transformed in this partnership as we follow Christ’s call to welcome all.
