We recently had a ball participating in the Women’s March, some of us went to DC, others stayed here in St. Paul. Here’s a video we made :Video
Rev. Watkins and marchers,
Yours was the only self-identifying church I saw.
Thank you for being there! How grateful I was to see your sign. I marched with a friend who does not attend church and I said “Hey! That is my church. I want to go over and say ‘hi’ to my sisters. Afterward my friend asked me to tell her a bit more about this “Episcopal” church and how they could be so brazenly political at a march. I told her it was easy because Jesus was and still is controversial. And we talked more because she knew who Jesus was. It warmed my soul that your sign started a conversation. Thought you might like to know that your evangelism is no longer a secret.
The day after the rally we held an intergenerational “Respect Women” workshop, where we got a chance to listen to and speak with our children about what it means to respect the rights of all genders.
