So WAAAAAYYYY back in January of this year I decided to create an event called Apology 2013. You can read more about my idea here. I was passionate about it, harrassed people via email, blog comment and twitter.
Unfortunately, I only had a handful of people get on board. Not on board enough to promote it, but on board enough to say they would participate. But, hey, I took what I could get. After a few weeks of pushing my idea onto people, I realized that it just wasn't working. Few people cared and some even flatly disagreed. I was deflated.
So as June 25th quickly approached, I found myself with a tough (for me) choice. Do I continue knowing that I was a single voice amongst a clamorous online community? Do I just throw my hands up, knowing that my efforts would reach few? Well, after contemplating my options I've decided that even if I stand alone, I've still got to stand.
So, I remain firm in my belief that there must be a move like this to bridge the ever expanding gap between many people in the world, those that are members of the LGBT community and those that simply support them, and the Christian community. So, once again, I invite you to join me in my efforts to do just that. To keep it simple I've included a .jpg that you may use. I recommend:
1. Change all of your online profile pictures on June 25, 2013!
2. Share it on Facebook, your blog, Instagram, Twitter.
3. Turn it into a T-Shirt or Button. For those more economically minded, you can print it on a file label and wear it on your shirt.
Here's a post I read today over at Matt Appling's blog that stirred me.
I invite you to join me in this cause, however lost it may be.
