Jesus in Love
I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people. For unto you
is born this day in the city of David
a Savior, which is Christ.
-- Luke 2:10-11
“Rainbow Baby Jesus” celebrates the birth of a child sent by God for the good of all, including the “rainbow tribe” of LGBTQ people.
When Jesus was born, God became flesh. It was a total, shocking identification with all people, including the whole rainbow spectrum of gender identities. Merry Christmas!
Rainbow Christ, you light up the world.
You make rainbows as a promise to support all life on earth.
In the rainbow space, we can see all the hidden connections between sexualities, genders and races. Like the rainbow, may we embody all the colors of the world! Amen.
