My partner Emma has reached the end of her training and waiting – on August 28th, on her birthday, she becomes ordained as a full Reverend in the Metropolitan Community Church. Its a real big deal to both of us, and to her family, who are travelling for the occasion. We’re also having some MCC pastors and elders travelling in from a distance. Rev Elder Darlene Garner (who was the pastor when we joined MCC NoVA back in 1996) is flying in from Monterrey Mexico, and some other surprises are expected. Even my Dad is coming to see the service, and he’s not regular church-going folks!
As you might imagine, I’ll be away from the computer most of the weekend. My hands will be busy with family and guests and such – – but I’ll post pictures once I have them.
