General synod, the national gathering of the United Church of Christ, is happening this weekend in Long Beach, CA. Our pastor and several members are there, some in major leadership roles. Please pray for all the people who will be debating and deciding major issues for our church. One thing that WILL happen at General Synod is a giant HURRAH for yesterday’s Supreme Court decisions on DOMA and Proposition 8. The General Synod of the UCC voted for Marriage Equality back in 2005 and we’re just as pleased as can be that the Supreme Court has caught up with us!!
