Buena Vista United Methodist Church (BVUMC) in Alameda, CA voted to be a reconciling church in 2006. On May 5, 2013, in partnership with BVUMC's Reconciling Ministry, NRJ again hosted a booth at the annual BVUMC Bazaar. We displayed photos taken at the Bazaar in 2009 for the One Big Family Photo Solidarity Project and gave out Blessed stickers and rainbow cross lollipops. We invited attendees to join the project and stand in solidarity with LGBTQ people by taking their picture holding a sign that read, "I am Christian and I stand in solidarity with LGBTQ people" or another solidarity message of their choice. The BVUMC community was excited about the opportunity to show solidarity for LGBTQ people.
We invite you to join the One Big Family photo solidarity project. If you'd like to be a part of the project, send your photo and written consent for us to use the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NRJ is starting a new intergenerational choir for API LGBTQ people of faith and allies. It will be a great opportunity to be in community with other API LGBTQ people of faith and allies as well as an opportunity for us to be a visible, beautiful presence in our API churches and at queer events.
The choir will be directed by the wonderful and talented Megumi Yoshida. Rehearsals will start in March and take place weekly on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm at Pine United Methodist Church in San Francisco. A weekly commitment is required.
If you'd like to join the NRJ choir or have any questions, please contact Lauren Quock, NRJ Coordinator at (510)859-3874 or email@example.com.

Why I Chose to Get Arrested
A letter from Rev. Deborah Lee
Rev. Deborah Lee and three other PSR staff people were arrested in act of civil disobedience on May 26, 2009, following the California Supreme Court's decision to uphold a constitutional amendment that denies the full equality of same-sex couples under the law.
