Thank God for Nonbinary People, A Prayer of Praise

Thank God for our Nonbinary* siblings!

The both/and

The not really,

the sort of

The people of twilights

sunrises and sunsets

The today I do this, and tomorrow I’ll do that.

The ones who escape easy definition,

and yet are so definitely

xe

ze

sie

co

them.

Here’s to those who help us to understand aspects of God,

That we never understood before,

male and female Both in the image of God.

Mother and Father God.

God of many breasts, God almighty, God of many mounds.

Here is to the enbys, whose sense of fashion is superior,

and yet we still don’t know how to market to them

(silly commercial straight/cis, whatever people)

Here is the the nonbinary people,

beautiful, perfect, made in God’s image.

God bless you.

Thank you.

I hope you are affirmed and blessed,

today and everyday.

Amen.

For All the Beauty*

Sing to the Lord a new song, praise God’s Holy Name.

For another child has claimed their name and identity!

Sing with thanksgiving and pray for protection! For every single person who has to defend and define and redefine on a regular basis. May they feel protected and loved.

Send out the birth announcement, for God’s beloved has found more beauty in themselves to rejoice in!

God, we know you are beyond binary. Black and white are but human lines drawn in the sand. He, she, they, xi, ze, zir, hir, co and ey; You know and recognize and use all of the pronouns! Your name is a pronoun! You are the great I am, the we, the they that is God!

Whenever we discover the complexity, mystery and variety of gender and attraction, we will rejoice.

We will say–we have a God whose image is reflected in the beauty of both Laverne and Elliot. Mighty and Bounteous God, you are the right God for us.

For you created them…

….and they are wonderfully and fiercely made.

God who calls each and every one of us by our living name,

We give thanks for all the beauty* of the earth,

especially that beauty* that is encapsulated in the uniqueness an plurality that is the queer+ community.

We praise you God for this creative work of your hands, today and everyday.

Amen.
