the United Church of Christ. Your presence here is a blessing to us, and we
hope you will return often. Cathedral of
Hope began in 1970 with a circle of 12
friends, and has since grown into the
world’s largest progressive Christian
church with a primary outreach to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and
queer/questioning people.
•The VISION of Cathedral of Hope is to
be a community of hope proclaiming
God’s inclusive love, removing
barriers to faith and empowering
all people to grow in grace toward
•The MISSION of Cathedral of Hope is
to reclaim Christianity as a faith of
Extravagant Grace, Radical Inclusion
and Relentless Compassion.

une is designated as Pride month in the United States of
America. At the beginning of this month, in his declaration of
Pride month, President Obama said this:
There remains much work to do to extend the promise of our
country to every American, but because of the acts of courage of
the millions who came out and spoke out to demand justice and
of those who quietly toiled and pushed for progress, our Nation
has made great strides in recognizing what these brave individuals long knew to be true in their hearts—that love is love and
that no person should be judged
by anything but the content of
their character. During Lesbian,
Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender
Pride Month, as Americans
wave their flags of pride high
and march boldly forward in
parades and demonstrations,
let us celebrate how far we have
come and reaffirm our steadfast
belief in the equal dignity of all
I call upon the people of the
United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and
to celebrate the great diversity
of the American people.
Today we celebrate our diversity here at Cathedral of Hope.
We celebrate how far we have come as a church and community of faith. We affirm and recommit this church community as
an open and affirming space where all people are not just welcomed, but celebrated. We celebrate our uniqueness and our
shared values and are reminded that we are all children of God,
created in the very likeness and image of Godself.
In celebrating Pride, we also celebrate the God who welcomes
you, and who welcomes me; the God who is constantly challenging us to ever widen the doors of welcome, and whose hospitality calls us now to “welcome the stranger” and to make
room for one another.
The way of Jesus is not easy, but it is life-changing. Once again
we come together to reclaim our faith and to reaffirm our call as
Cathedral of Hope, a place of extravagant grace | radical inclusion
| relentless compassion.
Sincerely, in Christ
In consideration of those

Our Processional Hymn this
morning, written by David Lohman, was included in the new
Community of Christ Sings hymnal of the Community of Christ
denomination. A native of Minnesota, David Lohman grew up
the son of a Lutheran minister.
Church was the center of much
of his life. But his years were
filled with pain over his emerging
sexuality, desperately praying for
God to “cure” him of his feeling,
to make him “normal.” On his
23rd birthday he began a Spiritled period of his life, resulting in
coming out as a gay man, certain
of God’s unconditional love. Since
2006 David has served as Faith
Work Coordinator for the National
Gay & Lesbian Task Forces’ Institute for Welcoming Resources.
He has served as Minister of
Music for Living Table UCC in
Minneapolis since 2001. David’s
hymn, originally titled FOR ALL
THE CHILDREN, has been sung
by welcoming congregations and
at conferences throughout the
country. It was used in a music

Nella Fantasia (on page 4)
Nella Fantasia (In My Fantasy or In My Imagination) is a popular classical crossover song. The melody is based on the instrumental piece Gabriel’s
Oboe written by composer Ennio Morricone for the 1986 movie The Mission. The Italian lyrics are by Chiara Ferraù. It was first recorded by Sarah
Brightman in 1988, and has since been covered by artists such as Jackie Evancho, Celtic Woman, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The version sung
today is based on the arrangement recorded by Il Divo.
**GOSPEL LESSON Matthew 10: 40-42
Rev. Dr. Don Longbottom
Designated Conference Minister
South Central Conference of the UCC
Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.
Come, Holy Spirit.
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
Glory to you, O God.
“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the One who sent me.
Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet's reward; and whoever
welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the
righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a
disciple – truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.”
This is the Gospel of Hope.
Praise to you, Creator, Christ and Holy Spirit.

The Radical Sayings of Jesus
Rev. Dr. Neil G. Cazares-Thomas
“Whoever Welcomes You, Welcomes Me”
Ours the Journey (on page 6)
The lyrics and hymn tune to Ours the Journey (also known as In the Midst of New Dimensions) were written by Julian Rush (b. 1936). Rush was born
in Meridian, Mississippi, educated at the Perkins School of Theology, SMU, and the University of Denver. In 1983, Rush was named the founding
director of the Colorado AIDS Project. An ordained United Methodist minister, who served churches in Dallas, Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs
for 17 years before coming out as an openly gay man, the hymn was originally written on the theme of diversity for a meeting of the Rocky Mountain
Conference. Rush sought to incorporate Native American spiritual imagery with Hebrew imagery in the lyrics. He learned about native spirituality from
a friend in Colorado. The text and tune were written simultaneously.

Sung in Italian; translation:
In my imagination I see a just world,
everyone lives in peace and in honesty there.
I dream of souls that are always free, like the clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.
In my imagination I see a bright world, even the night is less dark there.
I dream of souls that are always free, like clouds that fly.
In my imagination there exists a warm wind,
that breathes on the cities, like a friend.
I dream of souls that are always free, like clouds that fly,
Full of humanity in the depths of the soul.
Hear the good news, you’ve been invited no matter what the world may say;
Come to the feast God has provided, here you will always have a place.

Cathedral of Hope celebrates an open communion. We understand the sharing of the bread and the cup in Jesus’ name
to be a representation of an ancient vision of God’s feast for all peoples. We don’t require you to be a member of this
church, or any church, to participate with us in this feast of grace. Simply come forward at the ushers’ direction. After
dipping a wafer in the cup, the minister will place it on your tongue and offer a brief blessing. If you prefer to serve
yourself, cup your hands in front of you as you come to receive communion.
Gluten-free Wafers are available from the silver intinction set at the center point. Please indicate your need to the
ushers on the center aisle and they will direct you to the appropriate position. We ask that you serve yourself—take a
wafer and dip it in the juice—in order to avoid cross-contamination by the server.
Come, My Way, My Truth, My Life
Come, my way, my truth, my life: Such a way as gives us breath,
Such a truth as ends all strife, Such a life as conquers death.
Come, my light my feast, my strength: Such a light as shows a feast,
Such a feast as mends in length, Such a strength as makes its guest.
Come, my joy, my love, my heart: Such a joy as none can know,
Such a love as none can part, Such a heart as joys in love.
Words: George Herbert, 1633, adapted; Music: Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1922

This is the air I breathe, this is the air I breathe,
Your holy presence living in me.
This is my daily bread, this is my daily bread,
Your very word spoken to me.
And I, I’m desperate for you. And I, I’m lost without you.
This is the air I breathe, this is the air I breathe.
In Your Presence
In your presence there is comfort,
in your presence there is peace.
When we seek to know your heart
we will find such blessed assurance,
in your holy presence, Lord.
It has become a tradition
at the Cathedral of Hope
to rise as we end our
time of communion (as

hands as an expression
of our unity in Christ,
and lift them up in glory
to God.

celebrate the first year of Marriage Equality. The hosts for the event are Equality Texas, Cathedral of Hope, Resource interest.
Center, Lambda Legal, Human Rights Campaign, Turtle Creek Chorale, GALA Gay and Lesbian Alliance of North
Texas, and North Texas LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
TODAY, CoH Sanctuary, 4 p.m.
In addition to the featured evening celebration, there will be music by Cathedral of Hope and Turtle Creek Chorale, along
with great speakers — including Neel Lane, the attorney who represented Texas’ same-sex couple plaintiffs for marriage
equality; Cece Cox, the CEO of the Resource Center; Judge Tonya Parker, one of the Dallas judges who married many
couples that glorious day; and Steve Rudner, Chairman of Equality Texas.
Guests will enjoy champagne, three cakes donated by the Dallas Affaires Cake Company, beautiful flowers by 21 PARC
and iced tea from the Dallas Tavern Guild.
Did you know?
In Texas, it is still legal to fire someone based solely on sexual orientation or gender identity. There is no Texas law prohibiting discrimination in public schools based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Currently, 19 million Texans are
not covered by some form of nondiscrimination policy in the communities they call home.
Much remains to be done to ensure each and every Texan can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination
regardless of gender identity or expression. Gaining the freedom to marry was a transformative win with major gains for
same sex couples, and the struggle for full equality continues. We fight for good laws, and we fight for the right to live a
good life. We must remain united, our passion ignited, as we fight today for a brighter tomorrow.
