June 29th was Pride Sunday. After an colourful and caring Pride service lead by Warren Schell the congregation got together for a group photo in all the colours of the rainbow.
According to Wikipedia, "The use of the rainbow flag has a long tradition; they are displayed in many cultures around the world as a sign of diversity and inclusiveness, of hope and yearning." also it "harkens back to the rainbow as a symbol of biblical promise."
