Dear friends at First Congregational Church,
Terry Rice, a fellow member of our church, has organized a contemporary LGBTQ affirming worship service to which you all are warmly invited:
Open Door Vespers
First Congregational Church of Walla Walla
73 S. Palouse St.
"We are a contemporary Christian alternative for an evening circle of prayer, songs, religious deconstruction and spiritual detox. We are a small oasis that affirms full participation of LGBTQ in public spiritual life, women in spiritual leadership, and we integrate people of color in all matters.
We welcome recovering "ex-vangelicals" who are sojourning with their Spirit-led cultural expressions into a wider Christian community-- not into conformity, but into a diversity.
This is a brief hour for whatever your mind and body aches for healing. Whether or not this evening enters for you a Sabbath of peace, of creation care, of self care, or of social justice, you are welcome and we hope you feel LOVED."
Please wear masks and respect distance with others.
I for one can't wait!
In faith, with courage,
