The slogan on this badge arrived in Glasgow with the Canon Missioner for the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway, the Rev Canon Audrey O’Brien Stewart. She had been a member of groups of Episcopalians using same slogan at Pride events in the USA.
The slogan is a Beattitude and takes its form from the beattitudes that Jesus used in the Sermon on the Mount which can be found in the Bible in the Gospel of Matthew chapter 5.
Pride is a combination of protest and celebration. This badge is a reminder that LGBT people are uniquely blessed by God with gifts, skills and much that in turn blesses the world.
