"You gave us these bodies. And You called them good." This message, from our song, “These Bodies,” is at the heart of this liturgy experience we developed called This Is My Body. This liturgy is designed to help us reclaim God’s love for our bodies and refute the voices that would have us living in shame, constantly trying to make our bodies acceptable. We believe to love our bodies as God loves them is a radical act and a redemptive one. And every time we’ve walked with people through this liturgy it has been a source of deep healing for all of us.
