24 choir members, 20 clergy, from 17 faith communities, 140 attendees
An indescribable evening and overwhelming response to New Braunfels' first Interfaith Pride Worship Service and the launch of the New Braunfels Interfaith Association.
Hearts were moved, inspired, and healed.
Still in shock at what we managed to pull off!! Will be unpacking this evening for quite a while.
It all happened because a church was started in New Braunfels in 1966, then made the brave leap to become one of the first Open and Affirming congregations in the UCC (and country), and worked to uphold its heritage as a leader in issues of justice and peace, and still keeps showing up today to blaze new trails.
Local Episcopal Church discussing hosting it next year and conversation already happening about what we can do for our next interfaith event.
We’ll see what God does with all of this next!!
Thanks to all who helped make this happen!!
