Home for the Holidays

As we approach the Winter Solstice, the darkest season of the year, the holidays remind us that Light shines in the darkness. The winter holidays also encourage us to gather with family and honor those relationships. This makes the holidays especially difficult for people who don’t have faith that their families will share love or support, or might have unexamined biases that have sharp edges.

PFLAG National has a couple of great articles that address this situation, whether you are trying to protect yourself, or support another. Check out these articles at PFLAG National: How to Ally for the Holidays and Going Home for the Holidays… or any days.

And if you are free the Thursday evening after Christmas, join us at our monthly support meeting in Bowie. We all benefit from sharing our stories, our questions and concerns.

Wishing you joy and peace this winter season.
