“The mark of spiritual maturity is the ability to deal with paradox...” Rev. Jaelynn Pema-la Scott
This week on The VUU, in addition to calling us to be more embracing of our transgender and queer siblings and varieties of trans theologies, we are called to embrace ministries, rituals and paths that embody and celebrate our unique spiritualities within and beyond our existing faith traditions.
Speaking about being in the margins of faith, spiritually and theology, Rev. Jaelynn Pema-la Scott says, "Everything we do is revolutionary. Anything that we develop and hold true to ourselves is liberative ... Anytime I pray it is an act of revolution. It is activism. Anytime I declare myself a minister and say that my ordination is valid and that I hold wisdom and truth, that is an act of resistance.”
May each journey, mysterious and divine, be blessed.
