Ascension Sunday

“Let us with gladness present the offerings and oblations of our life and labor to the Lord.
Presentemos al Señor con alegría las ofrendas y oblaciones de nuestra vida y de nuestro trabajo.”

Today is Ascension Sunday; as for the last few years, Episcopal Church of the Ascension combined the 11:00 Spanish and 11:15 English services into a bilingual service at 11 in a pavilion in Bohrer Park (we still had most or all of our other usual services etc.), followed by the annual parish picnic at 12:30.

Julia made pasta salad (pesto tortellini, mozzarella balls, strawberries, candied walnuts, basil from our garden; olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, salt -- click here for the recipe), I made fauxitos (mojitos from Newman's Own limeade, Giant Food seltzer water, and mint from our garden; fun fact, Giant has merged with Stop & Shop, which began as a Jewish family's grocery store in my native Boston, and among other connections was one of my father's freelance photography clients).

Fairness For All Marylanders Act - UPDATE again

Opponents failed to gather enough signatures to file a petition by midnight last night -- 
the Fairness For All Marylanders Act will not be overturned! 
#FAMA14 updates MD’s anti-discrimination law to include trans people, 
was signed by the governor on May 15th and will now go into effect October 1st!
Thanks so much to everyone who worked so hard to defend the Act!
