Outside the church, a group of over 50 reconciling United Methodists from the California-Nevada Conference gathered and formed a “Circle of Love” – a public witness of support for this same-sex marriage which also launched their “Season of Love” actions. Holding signs and banners, they sang, prayed, and spoke of God’s love for all people. In a press conference attended by Frank Schaefer, defrocked by his conference for officiating the wedding of his own gay son, the group shared their vision of a fully inclusive UMC. Please check the RMN Facebook Page for a complete coverage of this witness. For ideas and ways to support and participate in “Season of Love” please go to their website www.seasonoflove.info.
