November 2008

Last Thursday, religious leaders supporting marriage equality in Maine held four simultaneous press conferences to make public our position on the issue. We got coverage in the Bangor Daily News, the Ellsworth American, the Portland Press Herald, and a few other papers. But media is no longer confined to print and broadcast. A friend recently wrote to me on Facebook to congratulate me on being quoted on Pam’s House Blend, an “online magazine in the reality-based community”. Read it here. Thanks, Pam! With blogs and the internet, anything that really matters can become national news.

We had some sad news on Sunday. Dear friend of the congregation and pillar of the Hancock Point community Daphne Crocker passed away on Sunday morning. She had been quite ill but was still sweet and joyful and wise and friendly, and lived determinedly until she was done. We will be among many who miss her. Read tributes here and here.
