    With the up-coming election, in which we'll be voting on marriage equality in Washington, this is important; among other things we want to show that the fundies do NOT speak for all Christians!

    ***

    Mark your calendar for Sunday, October 21, and join us at Trinity Episcopal Parish, Seattle, for our 11th annual Matthew Shepard Memorial Sermon. This year our guest preacher will be The Revd. Stan Fowler, who will preach on "Marriage Equality is the Gospel mandate for our time.” Please bring your family and friends to hear our message of Christian support for marriage equality.

    Father Stan served as a parish priest for 32 years in churches in California and Washington state. He retired in 2004 after having served as the rector of St. Andrew’s, Seattle, for 22 years. He has served for the past two years as the Associate for Christian Formation at Trinity, which has included teaching adult education classes.
    Fr. Stan will be available at Coffee Hour after each service, to answer questions.

    Services are at 8:00 and 10:30 AM, and all are welcome. Trinity is a proudly Open and Affirming congregation.

    Trinity is located at 609 8th (8th and James). Parking for Trinity services, concerts, and other parish events is located in the parking garage at Skyline at First Hill. The entrance to the garage is located on Columbia Street between 8th and 9th Avenues.

    (at first I read that as "Matthew Shepard coming to Seattle", and was horrified that someone would exhume the poor boy to parade his remains around.)

    icon_biggrin.gif Well, Christians do believe in the resurrection, but not quite that immediately! icon_biggrin.gif
