Every Second Sunday Dreams and Visions gathers for worship. At this month's gathering, we'll be celebrating something very special! The marriage of Diane and Ernest!
Diane has been a dedicated member of the Dreams and Visions community since we launched. We were so glad to get to know her partner Ernest, and welcome him as well.
Their wedding will give us the opportunity not only to celebrate their love, but to reflect on the gifts God gives us through Queer relationships and family.
Everyone is welcome to come and be a part of this day, whether you call yourself spiritual, religious, or none of the above! And everyone who comes with a spirit of love is invited to be a part of blessing the marriage of Diane and Ernest.
At this gathering we will:
-Sing with Salem Mattaniah Kamalu, our musician, and Morgan Coleman, our guest musician
-Read scripture together
-Hear a sermon from Emily about the gifts of queer love and relationships.
-Gather around the table for communion
Help Make it Happen!
We have two volunteers who are bringing red roses (Diane's request) and a cake!
We're also looking for someone to decorate, someone to pick up rings (you can be reimbursed) as well as greeters to make sure everyone feels welcome
Help Support Diane and Ernest!
We want to surround Diane and Ernest with our love and support. If you are able, please contribute to one of the items on their registry, so they can start married life with ease.

What is Dreams and Visions?
Dreams and Visions is a spiritual community in Baltimore that’s awake to the realities of our world and alive to the possibilities of God. We gather once a month on the Second Sunday of the month for worship.
Together, we’re creating an imaginative space of restoration, where we find the courage to be our full selves. We are a community rooted in the faith and experiences of LGBTQ+ people.
At Dreams and Visions, we seek to pattern our lives after Jesus, that healer, agitator, and teacher who stands on the side of the oppressed.
A project of the Lutheran Church (ELCA) and supported by the Delaware-Maryland Synod. Lutherans believe that God no matter how far we have wandered, we are never out of God's reach. We believe that grace is offered freely: we don't need to earn God's love.
Dreams and Visions affirms that everyone, including LGBTQ folk, is made in the image of God.
