What if God Was One of Us? 'Sacred Presence' Kicks Off Pride Week

Posted By on Sat, Oct 5, 2013 at 10:31 AM

Many mainstream faiths believe that people are made in The Creator's image, and we are all very much loved. If God our parent is capable of consternation, though, surely the bigotry and violence humans inflict on each other must make freewill seem like a questionable gift.

In the face of some of the worst kind of bigotry and violence, faith has brought Tucson's LGBTQ community and its Multi-Faith Pride Service to their fifth year. The fifth anniversary event, Sacred Presence, kicks off PRIDE Week with a service from 3 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 6, at the Scottish Rite Temple, 160 S. Scott Ave.

LGBTQ-community members, their friends and allies will experience interconnected stories from different faith traditions set to rituals, music and words. A reception follows. There is no charge; parking is free and the space is fully accessible. All are welcome.

There also will be information about Signs for Change, a mural art and sign project for marriage equality. Visit signsforchange.org for more information.
