To Those Who Work for Justice...

As my congregation is proudly affiliated with More Light Presbyterians, I thought it would be helpful to point you toward a video that tells what this organization is all about.

Michael Adee has posted parts 1 and 2 of "God's Whole Family" on Youtube.

Part 1
Part 2

This video will give you a history of the equality and justice movement in the PC (U.S.A.) and why it is important
now to take a stand for full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

We are thrilled that this past week to welcome
seven new More Light Churches!

It is one thing for a church to say it welcomes everyone. Maybe, maybe not. When you declare that you are fully inclusive, affirming, and active for equality specifically and openly, you are forced to stand by what you say.

I am proud of my congregation for taking this step and for all the other Presbyterian congregations who are walking the talk for equality.

We are also affiliated with Covenant Network of Presbyterians.

This organization also works for the full equality of LGBT people in the life of the church. They are excited about their new web page.
Check it!

Covenant Network, More Light Presbyterians, That All May Freely Serve, and The Witherspoon Society will be reporting the news, providing helpful commentary, and urging the PC (U.S.A.) toward justice as we prepare for the General Assembly in June.

This post is a shout out to all the staff and volunteers of the above organizations!

Love ya!
