A great time was had by all at Shelby's first Pride Festival. Redeemer had plenty of volunteers who came along to help with our booth. We had plenty of cookies, coffee and water which were gratefull received. We decided to give things away without charge.

We also had some information about the Church. Most important were the conversations which happened. Redeemer is known amongst those who have been in Shelby for a while for our inclusion but there are those who do not know who we are or what we believe. It is a surprise to them that there is a Church which does not discriminate based on gender identity or sexuality.

It was good to be a part of an event outside the Church walls - now we have found our feet, perhaps there is another event you would like to suggest we attend (and come along and help at!!)

There were some protestors but they were not enough to blunt the success of a great day. Shelby PD were very responsive - thanks to them!

We gave out some booklets about our beliefs around LGBTQIA+ if you would like to take a look this is the link

The days of early autumn bring signs of change to our lives and gift us with a foretaste of the feast to come.

The picture of a river displayed in the Sanctuary was designed by our Home School children. It flows from the altar and invites all people to be a part of us. A creation program for worship and Christian formation, cooler breezes and colorful landscapes are appearing right outside our windows. Come and see all the ways we embrace this beautiful season marked with prayers, feasting and special care for the poor and hungry. Enjoy this time of goodness.

We are sharing a prayer with you as a way to live out these autumn days.

Table Prayer for Autumn

We praise and bless you, O God, for autumn days,

And for the gifts of this table.

Grant us grace to share your goodness,

Until all people are fed by the harvest of the Earth,

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Ginger Hamrick and the Spirituality Team.
