On behalf of the Interfaith Round Table of Washtenaw County, I had the pleasure to partner with a new local community of faith leaders, Interfaith Pride – Washtenaw, to create an Interfaith Pride Celebration. The theme was, “Each Unique, All Beloved.” It aired live on Facebook and Youtube last Thursday night, and it can be accessed now in both places.
I could not be more pleased about how it turned out. As Anna Taylor-McCants, the pastoral intern at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, says in the introduction, “Our intention for creating this event is to bring together LGBTQIA+ affirming religious, spiritual, and faith traditions across the Washtenaw County area. Our hope is that whoever you are and wherever you are, you will experience a flavor of the Divine, of the Holy One, that nourishes your soul. Tonight, some of us will be celebrating together, and others of us will be lamenting together. And for some, I hope this is a beautiful worship experience. Thank you for being on this journey with us.”
These segments are so beautiful. I provided one as did members of my Chosen Family. I’d love to share this with you today. There is an ASL interpreter throughout, so feel free to share this with your Deaf friends too.
May you be affirmed!
