This past weekend I was privileged to attend the 2018 Austin, Texas Pride Interfaith Celebration sponsored by the Pride Interfaith Partnership. This very special and life-affirming event was hosted by Shalom Austin and held at the Jewish Community Center. What a wonderful way to kick off Pride Week!!
Below is a part of the Rainbow Candle Ceremony which particularly touched me. Perhaps it will speak to you as well.
Pride blessings to all, Melody
‘We are the love that dares to speak its name, all our names, clear and without fear.
We are the love that celebrates.
We give thanks for all who came before us, our ancestors and elders in spirit, and all who move and march and rock and roll with us now.’
