Dance anyone?

Reconciling in Christ's primary mission is not to gain tolerance, not even to achieve acceptance, but to change Christianity. Their mission statement:

"Freed by God's grace, the body of Christ on earth leads a joyous dance of transformation, integrating sexuality and spirituality, justice and mercy. Through continuous reformation, the Church embraces in holiness and into wholeness people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, strengthening us for authentic, visible, faithful lives. Dedicated to radical reconciliation, the Church falls into the heart of God's passionate intent, co-creating a world without outcasts, calling all to serve as guests and hosts at God's table of blessing and power."

Shrimp is going to sit that dance out!

I object in principal to any statement that begins with a verb instead of a subject. Passive voice! I hate it!
