Reverend Nica Eaton-Guinn
We all grow up with ideas of who or what is beautiful and worthy in our society. But what if that’s all to do with how we’ve been programmed as children? Can we turn our prejudices around by learning to recognize the beauty in all of us, no matter how we look or what our background, culture or gender expression? Can we see the divine essence in us all?
