The Wisdom of Dr. Ruby Sales

Reflections from the True Colors Conference

The 24 year old True Colors annual conference took place on March 17 and 18 and the University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT.  It was wonderful to be among 2,000 LGBTQ high school and college youths from across Connecticut and the region in a place that was welcoming, affirming and joyous.  My spirit was renewed by the gift of their energy and zeal.  I was moved by the stories of the kids as they struggled to find a place of welcome in the world and their parents as many of them struggled to do the right thing at the right time for them.

Lenten Reflection On Love

Love. God’s wondrous blessing and greatest gift.  God’s love for us is liberating, it gives us the courage to do Her work in Her broken and imperfect and marvelous creation.  God’s love for us is humbling, we can never be worthy of it.  God’s Love is comforting, it is unconditional. 

Love. Ephesians 1:4 tells us that God gave us love even before creating the world “According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.”

First Monday Service At The New Haven, CT War Memorial

On the first Monday of each month, a dedicated group of peace seekers gathers at the War Memorial in New Haven, CT to remember and to mourn the dead in the continuing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Each month we add a stone to a growing cairn.  One of our members placed a sprig of sage he collected on a recent witness at Standing Rock.
