Greater NW Pride: Calendars, Remembrances, and Thanksgiving

Brett Webb-Mitchell

11/24/2020

Calendars, Remembrances, and Thanksgiving   I carry two paper program calendars with me from my respective homes in the Presbyterian Church (USA)(PCUSA) and The United Methodist Church (UMC). Each one tells me the holy days in the life of the Church, the secular holidays like Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, as well as the programmatic special days, like “World Communion Sunday,” “Youth in the Church,” and “Disability Sunday,” to name a few. On my iPhone, I also have a calendar that reminds me ...

Patient? You Want Me to Be Patient?

Patient? You Want Me to Be Patient?                   Now this is patience. Peter Fischer@pixabay I want to know who the ignoramus was that said, “Patience is a virtue.” What? You say it was Saint Paul? And he said it a few times? Maybe not exactly in those exact words, but pretty close? Oops. My bad. Sorry Paul.   And here’s proof:   Romans 8:25 – But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.   And then there’s Galatians 5:22-23 (which I almost hesitate ...

Greater NW Pride: A Rushed Wedding

A Rushed Wedding   The below post started to spring up all over my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts in the last few weeks. I lost count of how many times this message, or something like it, sprung up, with pastors, ministers, rabbis, and priests from all denominations and religions, including some retired bishops of both The United Methodist Church and Episcopal Church, some who never “showed their hand” about where they stood on marriage equality before, offering officiating ...
