National Weekend of Prayer
The Supreme Court is preparing to hear arguments on marriage equality cases from the 6th district on April 28th. As we prepare for this historic hearing, the Religious Institute and Freedom to Marry is calling for a National Weekend of Prayer for the Freedom to Marry on April 24th – 26th.
They are organizing supportive congregations across the country to include in their regular services a prayer or moment of intention for the justices, the attorneys arguing the case, the plaintiffs, and all the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender families currently denied the freedom to marry in their home state. Nearly 2,000 faith leaders and communities have added their names to the faith amicus brief in support of marriage equality. Our congregation has signed up as a participating congregation for the National Weekend of Prayer. Prayers and responsive readings will be included in our worship this coming Sunday to reflect our participation. Following the worship service we will go to the front yard to hang the new banner and to ribbon the tree as part of our prayer. Hope to see you Sunday.
Grace and Peace,
