Longmont Faith Fest
Saturday, June 8th, 2:30-6:30 pm
St. Stephen’s Episcopal
1303 S. Bross Lane, Longmont
Picnic + Games
Faith Fest was just created by a group of open-minded, inclusive Longmont church leaders who believe God loves all people, just as they are, with no change demanded and no love withheld. Both queer and straight pastors will lead a spiritual service of celebration and healing, followed by a Pre-Pride outdoor picnic and “unchurchy” games! The list of musicians is growing, including local singer and songwriter extraordinaire, Patty Jackson.
All are welcome, no matter where they are on their spiritual journeys.
Internationally known speaker on gender equality, Dr. Paula Stone Williams, will speak at the service. Her story of transition from being the male pastor of a mega church to a trans woman is incredibly powerful. Coming out brought a crushing blow to her professional and personal life. Since then she has remade herself into her authentic self, has become an important voice for LGBTQ+ advocacy, and serves as a pastor at Left Hand Church in Longmont.
Paula has been featured in the New York Times, TED Talks, the Denver Post, New Scientist, Radio New Zealand, Europe's Retail Week Live, the New York Post, NPR and Colorado Public Radio. Paula's recent TED talk with her son, Jonathan, has had over one million views, and her TEDxMileHigh talk on gender equity has had over 1.9 million views.
Faith Fest is a totally casual time to check in with your spiritual side and have a ton of fun in the process.
This is a FREE event. There is no dress code. Come as you are!
