I had a different post scheduled for today but when something emotional happens to you and you're a writer/blogger, you write about it. This weekend I went to my first Pride.

For the third year in a row my church participated in God's Work, Our Hands- the ELCA's day of service. We… Continue reading God’s Work, Our Hands
