Giving Tuesday was instituted in 2012 to create a national day to kick off the season of giving as a response to the consumerism and commercialization of the post-Thanksgiving season. After Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday comes an opportunity to channel a generous spirit to non-profit institutions that reflect ones personal ideals.
If the mission statement of Canyonwalker Connections to encourage, educate, and engage in dialogue between the conservative Christian church and the LGBT community resonates with your goals, please consider giving to the organization.
Along with money donations, consider gifting Walking the Bridgeless Canyon — Repairing the Breach between the Church and the LGBT Community to your church library, pastor, former pastor (!), or family. The book was written in a kind tone with the non-LGBT community in mind. The history and research are informative and compelling for all readers.
Monetary donations can be given through Paypal to Canyonwalker Connections as a one-time donation or monthly donation.
I will be visiting many cities and conferences in 2015 to continue the work of Canyonwalker and look forward encouraging, educating and engaging in dialogue along the way.
Two other organizations which I support and serve on the Board and Advisory Board of are The Reformation Project and the Gay Christian Network. Consider gifting to these valuable organizations as well.
