Listen Up, Church! Reflecting on the Supreme Court Decision

It was supposed to be my day off, but instead I brought communion to the steps of the Supreme Court. On June 26, most expected that the court's decision on marriage equality would not come until the following Monday. But mere minutes after 10 a.m., Chett Pritchett texted me, “Put on your collar.” The court's decision was being released and the agreed upon plan was that Reconciling clergy who were available would show up and offer communion to the gathered crowd — whichever way the decision went.

At 11 a.m., Rev. Kate Payton and I were celebrating communion on the sidewalk, at the Supreme Court. For more than an hour, we offered the bread of life and the cup of grace to any and everyone who walked or wheeled past. Wesley Seminary students formed a pickup choir nearby.

Summer Worship

Join us for worship on Sunday, July 5, when the Rev. Mary Kay Totty's topic will be "Jesus, Lord." It is part of a summer series on the traditional names we bestow upon Jesus.

From June 7 through August 31, Dumbarton’s worship service will be at 10 a.m., upstairs, in the sanctuary. Please dress for the hot weather. You are welcome to bring cold water with you. Nursery care is available for infants, toddlers and young children through first grade.
