Over the past several days I have been in Ottawa speaking with other faith leaders and political leaders about the moral and spiritual challenge of climate change. On Sunday evening I participated in such a panel at a fully public event hosted at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, and the following morning, in a full-day Interfaith Forum.
With you, I continue to pray and act from a deep sense of relationship with the people of Haiti. It’s also been a week of responding to enthusiastic (mostly) response to my letter, “Where Is the Hope after Copenhagen?” within media interviews, correspondence, and conversation.
On the Front Page of The Ottawa Citizen Today appeared this story. The Rev. Brian Cornelius, the minister at First United presided over the service.
It was Pride day in Ottawa, and as has been the case for several years now, First United Walked in the Parade.
I was dressed up as a Teddy Bear. I was going to bring a sign that said, "Meet Me on Wondercafe.ca, Marry Me at First United"
However I chickened out at the last second. It turned out to be a good thing too. If I had been holding a sign I would not have been able to hug so many people.
These two pictures are of my Church, First United Church marching in the Pride Parade.
