Reverend Julie Brock
Delight - Motor City Pride

In a courageous act of love, our congregation will step out of our sanctuary to experience and participate in Motor City Pride! This is Michigan's largest celebration of pride for the LGBTQ community, with over 50,000 participants! Motor City Pride traces its roots back to June 1972 when the first march was held downtown Detroit to protest the homophobic laws and to work for recognition for LGBT Rights and Equality.

This service will be a great experiment, and many elements are still being worked out. Updates will be made to this order of service as things develop, so please refer back to this same link later in the week.

Rev. Julie will be leading a portion of the service and then departing with a delegation to march at Motorcity pride. Those who do not wish to march will remain in the sanctuary or zoom for some music and readings about pride presented by Todd Ballou, Steven Curtin and perhaps others.
