WELCOMING CONGREGATION: UPDATE FROM CARIBOU, MAINE
Hi all, just wanted to bring everyone up to date on what is going on at the northern outpost of civilization.
Although we have not been able to attend the gatherings due to the costs associated with travel and prioritizing meetings, we have not been inactive in regards GBLT issues.
I attended the Equality Maine Symposium at the request of the church, and was the only representative from Aroostook. I had been part of the County forum hosted by Equality Maine back last spring, and was surprised that no other participants went to Rockport. Since the symposium, we have worked out an agreement with EMAN to site a food pantry at the church for County sufferers of HIV/AIDS. In addition we met with Northern Lambda Nord to schedule joint activities on an ongoing basis.
Initially we will be hosting a Valentine's Day dance for the GBLT community here in the County. We are looking for an underwriter to fund a public showing of "For the Bible Tells Me So" a movie that debunks the Christian rhetoric against homosexuality. We hope to show it in the spring.
We are doing this after completing some major self examination in the congregation over the past 18 months. As a result of the process a few people decided unfortunately to separate themselves from the church. This has allowed the church to begin growing again with new families beginning to take part in the church. It also set the stage for the church to affirm its community "mission" by creating the position of Community Minister as part of the congregation's ministry and call me to the position.
The need for support for the GBLT community up here expressed at the Symposium, the Board felt, necessitated moving ahead in that area without formally going through the Welcoming Congregation Curriculum.
If you check out our website, you will see a new banner in the header expressing our new life and purpose.
