Something very special will be happening here in OC on Sunday, January 18. Soulforce, the group of progressive people of faith that travel across the nation & around the world to engage in dialogue with other faith communities on LGBT civil rights, will be coming to Saddleback Church two days before Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren is to deliver the invocation at Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration. And yes, you’re all invited to join this action!
Soulforce will be coming to Orange County on January 18, 2 days before Rick Warren speaks at Barack Obama’s inauguration, to bring the truth about Prop H8 & marriage equality to Warren’s Saddleback Church. This will be our chance to bring our message of equality directly to Warren’s congregation as we wear buttons & t-shirts that read, “gay marriage? fine by me.” This will help us start conversation in a nonviolent way. We’ll be attending the 11:15 AM service on this Sunday.
But before we attend the service, it’ll be necessary to first stop at the Irvine UCC at 8:30 AM to be trained in nonviolent communication strategies and pick up our buttons & shirts. From there, we’ll all go to church at Saddleback.
If you’d like to be a part of this historic action, then please RSVP here & follow the directions listed. I hope to see you there!
