Kids Table

kids table cartoon by nakedpastor david hayward

Jesus and an LGBTQ+ rainbow sheep sit at the kids table at Christmas dinner with all the white sheep at the big table.

Members of the LGBTQ+ community are sometimes invited but not included. Many people think this is good enough because, "Hey! We didn't kick them out! They're here?"

But that isn't good enough.

I drew this cartoon for the many who have not been included because they have chosen to live authentically.

How can we be better at making spaces that are inclusive and welcoming and, more than that, spaces that have allies for those who haven't had many people in their circle?
Are you at a lonely table this holiday season? If you're not, can you make your table a safe space?
