Rev. Schaefer Speaks At First UMC – Austin

frankschaefer2On Sunday, April 27, many MFSA and RMN supporters celebrated A Service of Witness to the All-Inclusive Grace of God at First UMC, Austin, the first anniversary of the decision made by to affiliate as a congregation with the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN).  Beginning with the Life in the City musical ensemble, plus a 70-voice choir, we prayed, sang, and shared Communion.

The featured preacher was the Reverend Frank Schaefer, who was put on trial and found guilty by the UMC in 2013 for performing a same-gender marriage of his own son.   His sermon, “A Time for Action: Stepping Out on the Waters of Faith” was both inspiring and challenging.
