Our very first photo submission of the summer is a special one: Sharon, Ellen and Mark visited the Supreme Court just one week before Sharon and Ellen’s marriage was fully recognized by our nation. It is so ordered! Hallelujah!
You can read more from leaders of the United Church of Christ about the marriage equality decision here (national leaders) and here (regional leaders). The UCC has played an important role in the struggle for marriage equality and equal rights, including our affirmation of equal marriage in 2005, organizing efforts in several states, and a particularly visible role in the North Carolina supreme court case. Here at WCUC we embraced an Open and Affirming covenant in 1999.
Congratulations to Sharon and Ellen — and to all of us! Please share your own summer adventures, near and far, by sending photos to our office.
