Did you have a wonderful 4th of July celebration, and want to keep the entertainment going through the weekend? Check out Epiphany Parish’s summer courtyard concert series, beginning this evening from 6-8pm. Fill your Friday nights in July with live music on the lawn outside the East entrance to the Great Hall of the Parish campus. Brass Band NW will kick off the concert series tonight, live music that all ages are sure to enjoy, with their unique all brass sound. Bring your picnic snacks and drinks, and spread a blanket out and dance the night away to show tunes, and big band hits! In case of rain the concerts could be moved indoors into the Great Hall, but you won’t have to worry about that tonight. Hope to see everyone there – bring your dancing shoes!
The Seattle Times just published an article “In Black Churches, A Gay-Marriage Divide” that discusses the gay-marriage issues that is being voted on in 4 states and how it remains a “thorny” issue in African-American churches. The first church mentioned in the article was Liberation United Church of Christ who worship at Epiphany Church in our Madrona neighborhood. The Liberation United Church of Christ is lead by co-pastor Marshan and Darrell Goodwin-Moultry. The two men married in New York and now are supporting Referendum 74 here in Washington.
