On Saturday, June 30th, Westminster Presbyterian Church participated in the annual Gay Pride Parade for the 3rd straight year! It was a perfect day for a parade and there certainly were lots of participating contingents and many, many people cheering from the sides as we went by. Representing Westminster, from left to right were:
Brian Roberge, Cindy Piatt, Lee Walters, Mary Jo Lundy, Bruce Cebell, Margi Coxwell, Michael Brinegar, Charlene Cebell, Arvid Lundy, Dick Avery and Tony Aja.
All good things must come to an end. We stopped to remove the signs from the truck so they wouldn’t come loose in the wind and two young men on skateboards came by us and thanked us for participating. As they were “cruising” away one turned back and said, “it’s good to see a church part of this!”
The task of carrying the banner back to the parking lot by the Roundhouse and to the church fell to Tony and Bruce.
Thank you to everyone who participated and to Westminster for being a More Light Presbyterian congregation where we welcome and embrace everyone who enters.
