NHM Ministrants is proud of an ongoing partnership with The NALT Christians Project since 2013, when we were still known as The Center for Nonharming Ministries. NALT stands for “not all like that.” Our own NHM Ministrants effort arose from a protest and counter-protest over just the issues that the good people at NALT are trying to address, so the partnership made great sense to us. We created a two flower icons and a video we called “Fire Ephemerals,” in celebration of our partnership, sharing that story. We look forward to continuing this fruitful, ongoing partnership. Now, we hope you’ll enjoy the little YouTube video, Fire Ephemerals:
Our Friendly Flowers
Here are two friendly flowers that we created. They feature a colorful rainbow cornflower (or perhaps it’s a thistle) and a statement of kinship and support. We have shared them from time to time, on our social media outlets.
How the Partnership Got Started
The conversation with NALT began after we found and posted this youTube video from “Not All Like That” as a featured “web gem,” congratulating the participants for compellingly presenting a real-life, gentle, humble, loving look at the opinions of everyday Christians.
At NHM Ministrants, we are welcoming and affirming of the dignity and value of all people, without qualification. With special care for those who may have been labeled as ”outsiders,” whether because of race, ethnicity, ability, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status (including widowhood), life or health history, caste, or social station.
Here’s that WebGem:
About The Not All Like That (NALT) Christians Project
The purpose of The NALT Christians Project is to give any and all LGBT-affirming Christians a means of sharing their belief that there is nothing anti-biblical or sinful about being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. NALT also provides resources for ministers who wish to be effective affirming advocates and pastors. The NALT Christians Project has a good collection of real, folksy testimonies from everyday Christians who aren’t “all like that,” with more videos added regularly. If you are so moved, NALT invites you to consider lending your voice by posting a youTube video with them, just as we have done. Details at www.notalllikethat.org.
