November 1, 2009: All Saints Day Celebration

Posted on : Oct 30th, 2009 | By | Category: This Sunday's Service

Last Sunday in her sermon, Kobie quoted one of my favorite Psalms:
“I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139:14) The week before last I was co-leading a workshop at Models of Pride 17, the 17th annual GLBTQ youth conference sponsored by Friends of Project 10, one of the first Gay-Straight Alliance type programs for high school age youth. Virginia Uribe and Gail Rolf founded the program at Fairfax High School many years ago because they wanted GLBT high school youth to have a healthier sense of self and a brighter future. There were over 700 GLBTQ and heterosexual young people who attended this year’s conference. Pastor Jerrell Walls from Christ Chapel in the Valley and I led a workshop on Homosexuality and Christianity. Mark and Mike from our congregation also shared their story – brilliantly, I might add! tax refund homely.
