Miranda Martini – Affirming Connections

Affirming Connections is an organization that’s placing itself at the intersection of faith communities in southern rural Alberta communities and the LGBTQ2S+ community, making valuable connections among churches interested in becoming an “Affirming” ministry. As part of their work, Affirming Connections created a series of videos called “Small Town, Big Impact: Stories and Strategies from the Affirming Journey”. Miranda interviewed Rev. Robin King and Ben Wilson as part of the video project, and I think we learned as much from her as she learned from our story here in Bashaw, Alberta where our United Church has been walking the path toward officially being an Affirming church. Those videos, as well as information about the other work of Affirming Connections, are available at their website, www.affirmingconnections.com
