Patrick Woodbeck from Rainbow Ministries will be speaking at CCS’s “Mindful Munchin'” event on January 21 2011. He will be discussing the “It Gets Better” campaign, and the role of the United Church. There will be more information to come.
If you haven’t heard of “It Gets Better”, it’s a project designed to combat the high levels of despair and suicide among LGBT youth and people who have experienced bullying based on their perceived sexuality by spreading the word that love and friendship and support and accepatance IS possible.
