Moment of Zen: Rainbow of Pride

Don’t you just love Gay Pride Season and all the colors of the rainbow?  

Remember the Bible story we were told as kids, that the Rainbow is a promise from God to not destroy the earth by a flood again.  So, the next time you see a rainbow, think of Noah and the flood. Remember that God loves you, and that no matter how bad the storm, there will always come a bright new day.  I have always loved that GLBT people have embraced the rainbow as their symbol of peace, love, and unity and that “no matter how bad the storm, there will always come a bright new day.”

That is God’s promise, and God always keeps his promises.  One of the things that can get in the way of our feelings of gay pride is religion, so tomorrow will begin a series of posts about Religion and Sexuality.  I hope that you will join me on this journey of discovery, reflection, and, yes, even pride.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
