Marriage equality conversation continues

More than 40 people from the community gathered at Bethel on Sunday, June 22th for a screening of Bridegroom and a conversation about marriage.


The film, Bridegroom, tells the true story of two young men in a loving and committed relationship that is cut short by a tragic accidental death. The film powerfully documents how people without the legal protections of marriage can find themselves shut off and ostracized.

Panelists included:

  • Phil Hicks, former Board President of the Metro DC Chapter of PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) and current Virginia Advocacy Chair; and
  • David Farmer, a member of Ravensworth Baptist Church in Annandale who is active in the Reformation Project, which educates Christians in supporting and affirming LGBT people.

If you missed the screening, but want to see Bridegroom, speak with Pastor Kristen to borrow the film.

The conversation continues at Bethel as we explore our position on marriage equality, with two listening sessions held in July. If you have not had an opportunity to voice your thoughts, feel free to speak with Pastor Kristen or Lisa Peterson.
