The immense love and support the members share with one another no matter where we are in our journey is

What do you most love about One TWU?

My hope for the church is that we can put community first, and put politics behind us. It's extremely discouraging to see some church leaders STILL believe it's their part to choose who sits at the table or not. I LOVE One TWU because it's an ever-growing table and it provides a space for TWU community members who might otherwise never have met an LGBTQIA2S+ person. I also love the people. So many of my "people" are because of One TWU. I guess that's multiple things...
