Dancing

For the Dancers

They didn’t want to Just dance
They wanted Sacred Space

Without hate
Or guns

We Pray
Fight
And Vote

Angered
We Demand Justice
& Remember

Bad Theology Kills
Bad Policy Kills

Affirmative Pronouns Saves
Sacred Spaces Saves
Giving Space Saves

Go
Be A Lifegiver

Sacred Spaces

A Sacred Space
Does not mean pews or Prayer

It means safety
for one to be their full self

A Sanctuary, does not mean a Pastor
or a Sign that says “Everyone’s Welcome”

It is a place where the food is abundant
and the boundaries keep people safe

Church is not a building
Its the Community that its neighbors

God is not an authority or a shamemaster
They are a home to safely come to, at the end of the long journey

Safety is not straight heteronormativity ableism in middleclass suburbs
Its the freedom for everyone to dance in their club

in their beautiful and fierce incarnation
without being shot, or being hassled on the way home, or the cops being called

Sacred Spaces
Means a Space for everyone to be Sacred, no more, no less.

If there is one things all humans need–
its real and salient sacred spaces

Selah
Don’t break humans

Selah,
Don’t break the Sacred Spaces
