Mission: We are a beloved community joining together from diverse spiritual backgrounds and ministering primarily within the Lesbian/ Gay/ Bisexual/ Transgender Community as a house of prayer of all people and a home for queer spirituality. We are a new witness of God’s radically inclusive love, while we recognize our connection to the historical Christian church. We are called to a prophetic ministry of peace and social justice. Therefore, we see as equally important the nurturance and growth of our congregation and communities, and our active involvement in the society around us.

WATCH: Amanda Gorman reads inauguration poem, 'The Hill We Climb'

When day comes, we ask ourselves, where can we find light in this never-ending shade?

The loss we carry. A sea we must wade.

We braved the belly of the beast.

We’ve learned that quiet isn’t always peace, and the norms and notions of what “just” is isn’t always justice.

And yet the dawn is ours before we knew it.

Somehow we do it.

Somehow we weathered and witnessed a nation that isn’t broken, but simply unfinished.

We, the successors of a country and a time where a skinny Black girl descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president, only to find herself reciting for one.

And, yes, we are far from polished, far from pristine, but that doesn’t mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect.

We are striving to forge our union with purpose.

To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man.

And so we lift our gaze, not to what stands between us, but what stands before us.

We close the divide because we know to put our future first, we must first put our differences aside.

We lay down our arms so we can reach out our arms to one another.

We seek harm to none and harmony for all.

Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true.

That even as we grieved, we grew.

That even as we hurt, we hoped.

That even as we tired, we tried.

That we’ll forever be tied together, victorious.

Not because we will never again know defeat, but because we will never again sow division.

Scripture tells us to envision that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid.

If we’re to live up to our own time, then victory won’t lie in the blade, but in all the bridges we’ve made.

That is the promise to glade, the hill we climb, if only we dare.

It’s because being American is more than a pride we inherit.

It’s the past we step into and how we repair it.

We’ve seen a force that would shatter our nation, rather than share it.

Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy.

And this effort very nearly succeeded.

But while democracy can be periodically delayed, it can never be permanently defeated.

In this truth, in this faith we trust, for while we have our eyes on the future, history has its eyes on us.

This is the era of just redemption.

We feared at its inception.

We did not feel prepared to be the heirs of such a terrifying hour.

But within it we found the power to author a new chapter, to offer hope and laughter to ourselves.

So, while once we asked, how could we possibly prevail over catastrophe, now we assert, how could catastrophe possibly prevail over us?

We will not march back to what was, but move to what shall be: a country that is bruised but whole, benevolent but bold, fierce and free.

We will not be turned around or interrupted by intimidation because we know our inaction and inertia will be the inheritance of the next generation, become the future.

Our blunders become their burdens.

But one thing is certain.

If we merge mercy with might, and might with right, then love becomes our legacy and change our children’s birthright.

So let us leave behind a country better than the one we were left.

Every breath from my bronze-pounded chest, we will raise this wounded world into a wondrous one.

We will rise from the golden hills of the West.

We will rise from the windswept Northeast where our forefathers first realized revolution.

We will rise from the lake-rimmed cities of the Midwestern states.

We will rise from the sun-baked South.

We will rebuild, reconcile, and recover.

And every known nook of our nation and every corner called our country, our people diverse and beautiful, will emerge battered and beautiful.

When day comes, we step out of the shade of flame and unafraid.

The new dawn balloons as we free it.

For there is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it.

If only we’re brave enough to be it.

[01/06/21]   We join in praying for the safety of our elected officials and all who work with them. We pray for our President Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Elect Kamala Harris as they face unprecedented chaos. We stand with our siblings of color who are calling out the truth that if they were the ones storming the Capitol, the response would have been much more deadly.

Hello Dear Ones,

Many of us will be spending this season sequestered in our homes away from biological or chosen family due to The Unpleasantness that starts with a C (and ends with a OVID-19). Make yours more festive by joining us in a virtual coloring Advent Pre-Gaming event. Bring your beverage of choice, your art implements, and your artistic energy to bear this Thursday, starting at 6:30 PM and ending around 7:00 PM. This is a drop in/out social get together so spend as much or as little time with us as you like. This event will be virtually hosted by Michael and Brent, with Brent providing some tips on how to use the coloring pages with your digital devices.

MCCSF is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

ADVENT 2020

Of all the things that 2020 has brought, giving permission to adults to stop and take time to color is one that we can get behind. This Advent we created special coloring pages for you to color at your leisure, themed around the four weeks of Advent: Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. Each week you will receive three pages that are recreations of our beloved stained glass windows and one page with a hand motif that fits the week's theme. These hands were drawn by Brent Gannetta to be purposefully androgynous with no embellishments or even fingernails. You are encouraged to color and adorn them as you see fit. Add rings, tattoos, wrinkles, rhinestones -- anything that makes these hands personal to you. If you choose you are encouraged to email pictures of your masterpieces each week to [email protected] by Friday night at 11 pm for inclusion in a presentation that Sunday. We hope that these coloring pages bring a little extra Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love to you and yours this Advent season. You will find 4 Colors of Advent Coloring Pages for week one at the end of this eConn. You may also download PDF (printable) or PNG (printabe or for use on coloring apps devices) options here
