MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT


When so many people around the world had such an atrocious 2020, it’s a bit daunting to come up with an inspiring New Year’s message for my Kinship family.  Not one place on this globe has been unaffected by the pandemic, much less the all-too-common bigotry and hate. The last year makes us wonder and think of the song, “Where is the Love?” by the Black-Eyed Peas. Listen to the song here.

MESSAGE FROM THE TREASURER

 

As we move into the holiday season at the end of this very difficult and stressful year, I am thankful.  I am thankful for all of you who have been part of SDA Kinship's 40-year journey. So many members, friends and allies have been part of the Kinship community during these four decades. You have made it possible for Kinship to provide its message of acceptance and love to many, many people all over the world.  As someone who was part of the organizing meeting in September, 1980, I am in awe that Kinship has continued to provide knowledge and support to our Adventist LGBTQ community and its allies.  It was only possible because of the many, many people, both alive and gone, who have been part of this effort.

COMING OUT - FAMILY PROCESS

Many LGBTQ+ folks have celebrated their successful “coming out” to friends and their families. It’s probably a process and event they had thought about and worked on for many months and years. Hopefully, they had created a network of friends and other LGBTQ+ folks that helped them - even coached them - on the scary but desired event. Their understanding and supporting friends were valuable allies for that major and probably emotional time.

NACHRICHT DES PRÄSIDENTEN

The loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg made the last few weeks tough, not just for the women of the United States, but for all of us. Justice Ginsberg was an extremely thoughtful and intelligent presence on the Supreme Court who expanded the civil rights of women in the United States, promoted the equality of men and women, and conducted herself with grace and determination on the highest court in the land. Her legacy will live on in spite of a concerted effort to undermine her efforts. I appreciate what she has done for women and, as a woman not married to a man, I could not have independently owned a home and business if it were not for her work as a civil rights lawyer, judge, and Supreme Court justice.

I’ve been really discouraged lately, as many of you have told me you are. With all that is going on in the world and in my country, the United States of America, it’s easy to be discouraged.

NACHRICHT DES PRÄSIDENTEN


When 2020 began, who could have ever imagined just where we’d be by July? With the global pandemic, our lives have taken quite a turn. While the effects of COVID-19 have been horrific all around the world, the infection rate has worsened in my country. Without clear and decisive leadership using actual science and making sure every citizen has access to personal protective equipment and accurate testing, there is very little chance that the infection rate will slow down any time soon.

REGION 2 - MARYLAND/DC AREA CHAPTER 


Region 2 continues to meet virtually via Zoom for First Sabbath lunch.
 
On the first Sabbath of every month, we meet at noon after attending New Hope via live stream. It's a great way to stay connected to each other.
 
Also, Kumar Dixit will be our speaker at our next vespers on May 15, and you will not want to miss it. We are all disappointed that we're not at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, for our annual Spring retreat where Kumar and his wife, Rej, were to be our guests for the weekend. We plan to have them join us when we are once again able to return to the beach for our mini-Kampmeeting.

Region Coordinator:

LET'S BE TENACIOUS!

Today's world is a bit chaotic! A few weeks ago our political world was filled with various discussions, opinions, needs, and desires and gatherings. Our physical world was moving out of wintertime and looking forward to springtime with less snow, tornadoes, and rain, and more wildflowers and wonderful sunsets. Suitcases and hiking backpacks were coming out of their closets getting ready for fun trips, looking forward to cruises, vacations, school proms and graduations, and spring break.
