Yesterday afternoon I went with the dear one to be part of community resources event focusing on resources for the Indigenous members of our city. While we were there we got to hear from Chevi Rabbit of Hate to Hope. Chevi spoke to us using their voice to encourage us to be change agents for both Indigenous people and those who are gender fluid – LGBTQ2S folk.
Chevi took a hateful thing that happened and decided that hope was what needed not hate and started the group Hate to Hope. Their vision for a world that is filled with hope rather than hate inspired me and reminded me that God is working through so many different people. That using our voices to become our actions is what we are called to do. To include those who some think should not be included is what we are called to do. Yesterday felt all about Advent and listening to one of God’s prophet’s calling us back to the straight path of love for all, justice for all, peace for all and hope for all.
