Family Affirmation

There was a world
When I saw only black and white
There was a time
When I would not have clicked “I like”
There was a century
When I was prejudiced and blind
There was a hypocrite
But I have left that man behind

There was a wedding
That was radical in scope
There is a marriage
Formed in love and forged in hope
There’s been a change
That you have helped me to confirm:
Yours is a Family
That I honour and affirm.

I wrote this when a gay Christian friend of mine shared photographs of her wedding. It was an important step for me.
