In awe of LOVERantWoman means to spend the next few days of the Valentine season celebrating Love. Bear in mind, this is RantWoman. RantWoman definitely promises some prickly memes mixed in with the hearts and flowers. Red roses. Watch for thorns.
First, we hold in the Light the FLGBTQC Midwinter Gathering.
RantWoman penned the following bulletin announcment anonymized here:
Friends are invited to hold in the Light the Midwinter gathering of Friends for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans and Queer Concerns (FLGBTQC) occurring this weekend in Burlington NJ. FLGBTQC helps sustain long witness at RantWoman's Meeting about diversity of loving relationships, gender identity, and marriage equality throughout Quaker circles. Friends might particularly hold in care two members of RantWoman's Meeting who both have important Quaker service roles for FLGBTQC.
Why a bulletin announcement and not, say, travelling minutes?
What other topics doddered to the top of RantWoman's spiritual compost heap as signs of preparations appeared on social media? STAY TUNED!
RantWoman finds this item topical. Unfortunately, in the spirit of flinging around Quaker crockery, RantWoman is also seasoning a call to elder based on exactly this sentiment plus some others. But that is more Love and Truth than this post needs.
