Janie Preaching at Cathedral of Hope, Dallas, TX
Rev. Dr. Jane Adams Spahr
THIS Sunday, Aug. 17, 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
On Sunday, August 17, CoH welcomes a pioneer in the Presbyterian Church (USA), Rev. Dr. Jane Adams Spahr. After the Presbyterian Supreme Court ruled that Rev. Spahr had repeatedly violated church policy by performing same-sex marriage ceremonies, her local presbytery decided to support her ministry. Rev. Spahr’s courage and determination paved the way for the Presbyterian Church’s decision in June to allow same-gender marriages. Janie has traveled throughout the country, educating and informing Presbyterians and others working on behalf of greater inclusiveness for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. We are honored to have Rev. Spahr visit CoH, and we especially invite our Presbyterian friends to join us for this special service.
