Wonderful God, your creations are limitless. And, our ability to comprehend your creation is limited by our humanness. It is through unconscious, yet self-imposed, blinders that we judge others who are different from ourselves. When we are given a chance to glimpse beyond our preconceptions, biases, and social constructs, allow us to comprehend that we have no idea of all that is possible. So, at this time we ask You to remind us that differences are only part of Your creation.
Help us to spread this understanding to others, particularly at this time when we say the names of our transgender siblings whose lives have been brutally taken. Help us to guide others to know that the vast diversity and variety of self-expression are all of your creation, and therefore, good. Amen.
