Pride in our CVUUS LGBTQIA+ folks and the larger community. We started our intergenerational worship earlier at 9:30 am then headed up to Burlington to MARCH in the parade. Thanks for special music from our ever expanding choir and beautiful seasonal arrangements from Dinah Smith. We shared our plate with Campaign Legal Center.

Excerpted from For Pride by Rev. Lois Van Leer:
Why do we march?
For those who are not able
For those who have been murdered
For those who are ravaged by disease
For those who are still beaten, still taunted, still harassed, still victims still targets
Why do we march?
Because some truths ain’t self-evident
Because all men ain’t protected equal
And we love a good party…
