Did you know Community of Christ appointed Apostle Robin Linkhart, a member of the Council of Twelve, to liaise with the Harmony Board of Directors? Apostle Linkhart is a wonderful ally, support, and minister, and her advisement to the Harmony Board of Directors has been (and continues to be) incredibly valuable.
Apostle Linkhart regularly attends Harmony Board Meetings as a support to the organization. The Harmony Board of Directors wishes to thank Apostle Linkhart for her support of the Queer Community.
As opportunities for collaboration arise, Apostle Linkhart provides the Board of Directors with the details of the opportunity. Examples of past denominational advocacy include advising on inclusive language, national conference policy documents, camp/event registration forms and housing recommendations, youth programs, inclusive content development, and more. She also acts as a Latter-day Seeker support as individuals sharing a Restoration Heritage with Community of Christ encounter the blessings of Harmony's community.
Dear Harmony members and supporters,
We are compiling a current list of ordained Community of Christ ministers willing and excited to officiate Queer/LGBTQIA2S+ wedding ceremonies.
Harmony is committed to providing its members with current, reliable contact information in order that they might be connected with affirming, kind, and inclusive individuals in their area wherever they are on their journey. This has historically been managed organically, but as we continue to grow, we are seeking out more formal ways of maintaining such records. In this case, we hope this database will be viewed as a valuable resource to our membership around the world as they plan one of the most important events of their lives: their wedding ceremony.
IS THIS YOU?
If so, please add your name to our database by clicking the button below.
As always, we pledge to safeguard your details and will only share them with interested individuals pursuing marriage.
On this day, Harmony joins with millions around the world who seek to honor the wisdom and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his quest for equality, opportunity, and safety for people of color in the United States.
The Harmony Board of Directors wishes to extend an earnest apology to all those made to feel less-than, uncomfortable, unsafe, unworthy, and hopeless due to our failings as an organization over the years. While these are merely words, we recognize reconciliation to be a vital starting point from which to begin important dialogue on this topic. Lifting and supporting intersectional voices is a Harmony priority, and we commit to doing better going forward. There is no time nor reason for complacency.
We are inspired by MLK’s good work, and we seek to emulate his approach to making our world a safer, more equitable place.
