It was great delight for us here at All Saints, Pasadena to welcome Davis MacIyalla -- one of those gay people of which there aren't any in Africa -- to share in witness and worship with us.
Davis is the Director of Changing Attitude Nigeria and he spoke at the Rector's Forum (video here) ...
Here we are in the obligatory "candid shot" after church, with Jim White, member of the All Saints vestry, founding member of Claiming the Blessings and chair of the L.A. Deputation to GC'09. (We just call him "Mr. All Church All the Time.")
Davis is on his way now to a conference in Wales -- Rebuilding Communion: Who Pays the Price? -- where he will be presenting a paper, along with other LGBT leaders from around the Anglican Communion (including our own fabulous Michael Hopkins.)
So Godspeed, Davis! Great to have you with us in Pasadena. Looking forward to seeing you in Canterbury this summer and beyond!
