A beautiful and gorgeous day in Santa Cruz...and a celebration of PRIDE and Peace United's OPEN & AFFIRMING COVENANT.  There was laughter and joy, and renewed commitment, and all kinds of young people reveling in a church that takes the gospel call to inclusion and justice SERIOUSLY!  At 9:30 we worshiped and sang together in Abbott's 11 we marched together, a single church of fantastic diversity.  What a marvelous parade!  Just as it should be when the PEOPLE OF GOD are in action!

And maybe the most inspiring part of the whole day: our daughter Claire reading an original poem ("Too Little Too Late") during our Celebration of Pride just before the parade!  Her voice...her spirit...her integrity!  Wow.
