Inclusive “Statement Of Affirmation” At Boston’s Trinity Church

Trinity Church in the City of Boston.

Here is the “Statement of Affirmation” from the well-known Trinity Church in Boston—- 

“Trinity Church of Boston welcomes and honors everyone,. In accordance with our baptismal covenant, we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, We strive to to include all persons without regard to sexual orientation, race,gender, family configuration, ethnic background, economic circumstance, difference in ability, culture, or age. Our love and acceptance of each other embody our commitment to unity with God and each other in Christ.”  

Trinity is an Episcopal church that dates back to 1733. The building (above) is something to see and worth a look if you are in Boston. 

I’m not a church-goer and I’m not likely to become one soon. But nor do I have a reflexive hostility to religion.

Many on my side of the aisle would have a more favorable view of religion if churches made a real effort at including all people.
