I was present yesterday at the Orchard Hill United Church of Christ, Chillicothe. The Illuminati was present and did so much to enrich the celebration of this open and Affirming Congregation. Your mission of voices raised and lives changed was fulfilled.
While I appreciated the Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus for a long time, Illuminati coming to Chillicothe and providing the service was very meaningful to me. I was pastor of the congregation when they voted to become O & A, but my best dreams did not include such a meaningful day as yesterday.
This congregation has had struggles with being O & A. After yesterday, I am sure they are well on their way to continued success.
Thanks to all who participated.
The Rev. Dr. Larry Miracle
