We’re sharing our favorite aspects of queer and trans faith and spiritual practices. We talk about how we’ve developed our own spiritual practices over the years, really leaning into what feels best for us and how they align with our values. The important part of creating spiritual practices is that they must be in line with your values! And sometimes finding spiritual practices means going beyond the traditional notions of what those ought to look like. We also discuss the significance of planning and setting goals, starting small and building over time, and connecting to past and future generations. Shay shares his love for journaling as a spiritual practice, while Brian discusses the power of repeating prayers and wearing physical reminders of spirituality. We invite y’all to reflect on your intentions for queer faith in the new year!
- Spiritual practices can go beyond traditional notions and encompass living in line with one’s values and engaging in intentional actions.
- Setting goals and planning can help individuals be more intentional with their time and live into their values.
- Starting small and building over time is a more sustainable approach to new spiritual practices.
- Connecting to past and future generations can provide a sense of continuity and inspiration in one’s spiritual journey.
- Journaling and reflective practices can be powerful tools for self-reflection and envisioning the future.
- Queerness, transness, and Christianity can intersect and inform one’s spiritual practices and understanding of faith.
- Reflecting on intentions for queer faith in the new year can help individuals set meaningful goals and engage in transformative practices.
