The Reconciling Ministries group of Park United Methodist Church in Brainerd will be hosting a showing of “The Shower of Stoles Project.”

 

The Shower of Stoles is a collection of over a thousand liturgical stoles and other sacred items representing the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people of faith.  These religious leaders have served in thirty-two denominations and faith traditions, in six countries, and on three continents.  Each stole contains the story of a GLBT person who is active in the life and leadership of their faith community in some way: minister, elder, deacon, teacher, missionary, musician, administrator, or active layperson.

 

This extraordinary collection celebrates the gifts of GLBT persons who serve God in countless ways, while also lifting up those who have been excluded from service because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.  The collection bears witness of the huge loss of leadership that the church has brought upon itself because of its own unjust practices.

 

The public is invited to view the exhibit during the following times:

Sundays July 23rd and 30th 10-12 AM at Park United Methodist Church

Thursday July 27th  12-3 PM at Park United Methodist Church

Saturday July 22nd 9-11AM and 2-4 PM at the Brainerd Public library
