Historic Christ Church celebrated its first same-gender blessing on Sunday, April 21. The Rev. Ann Gillespie, Christ Church Senior Associate Rector, officiated at the service, “As an Episcopal faith community, we witnessed and asked God's blessings upon the lifelong commitment Melissa Capers and Brunilda Hernandez have made to one another. This is a significant and joyful event, not just in the life of Melissa and Bruni, but in the life of our church: as a congregation, we are taking a historic and faithful step closer to the inclusive, abundant, generous outpouring of God's kingdom.”

Most of us have been uncomfortable at one time or another in our church buildings and some of us know about the complexity of issues that brings this about. Others know about how much all these repairs and maintenance cost. Still others know about technology changes in the past 60 years that make these systems more ecologically responsible, responsive to people’s needs, and cost effective. Every one of us cares about the historic significance of these buildings we cherish.
