I ask God to bless those people--over 1,000--who signed the State Department dissent cable. DT makes it a point of pride to harm those whom he perceives to have slighted him in some way. These Foreign Service officers and other employees of the State Department are taking a stand that has significant risks. God, please smooth the paths before them, protect them from meanness, and give them perseverance in this tumultuous time.
I also thank God for the many people who have worked over the years to make the Boy Scouts of America more inclusive. That must have looked like a hopeless battle at many points. Yet people kept pressing, and now transgender boys can join the Boy Scouts. I do not know the names of the people who made this happen, bit by bit, but God does. May they always be greeted with the welcome they worked to extend to others.
