Happy Pride! This is what we shouted back and forth to the crowd all day at the Columbus Pride Parade event held last Saturday June 18th. It was a beautiful June morning and everyone in our BSUMC group waited patiently in the middle of the Broad Street bridge downtown, just 1 mile from the church. Our group was made up of young and old, gay and straight, clergy and laypeople, and friends and family. It was an amazing and inspiring walk from start to finish. We felt the support by the record crowd lined up 2-3 deep along High St. from Front St. to Buttles Ave. We also felt Mary Cree’s presence each time Nancy blew Mary’s conch shell out the window of the truck. It was a fun day for all, as some of the group stayed at the festival and visited or manned the BSUMC booth with information on Reconciling Ministries Network and BSUMC Open Hearts, Open Doors and Open Minds.
Thank you to everyone who participated in making this event memorable, from the shuttle drivers to the banner carriers.
