Rev. Dr. Benjamin Broadbent, pastor at First Congregational Church in Colorado Springs, has been selected for the 2016 Inclusion Award for his leadership and advocacy for LGBTQ rights!

From the Colorado Springs Independent Article:

“I think a huge theme of the gospel is radical inclusion. I believe Jesus was radically inclusive in his time. He was always paying attention and directing his ministry and compassion toward those on the margins, specifically those who were differentiated by gender, by sexual difference, as well as by things like disease, impurity. The call of the church is to embody the call of Jesus to advocate on the part of the marginalized, including those who are sexually different.”
