NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY LITANY

We invite you to use or adapt this litany as a call to worship or another worship element in prayer and proclamation of the belonging the church extends to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

One: We are gathered by the God who creates;
All: The God who liberates and heals.
One: We are filled by the Spirit who breathes life into our bodies;
All: The Spirit who brings us together as one.
One: We are led by Christ, whose yoke is easy.
All: By Christ, whose burden is light.
One: Though we are many, we are united in grace,
All: We a mosaic made in God’s image.
One: Though we are many, we are God’s children,
All: We are beautiful in the colors we express of God’s love.
