Female couple, legally married, with co-pastor historic church in downtown Washington DC; another development on Orlando


A legally married female couple, Sally Sarratt and Maria Swearingen, will become co-pastors of Calvary Baptist Church in downtown Washington DC on 7th St, according to a Washington Post story by Michae; Allison Chandler, here.

First Baptist has sometimes participated in co-events, like choral concerts, with Calvary, over many decades.



I have a picture of Calvary somewhere, but I’ll take another one probably tomorrow because the Refugee Ball will be nearby.  (Note: 1/17: done).

Another important story this morning concerns the arrest of the Noor Salman, the wife of the Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, in California, on federal obstruction of justice charges, and on abetting a terror organization, New York Times story.    The event broke on our cell phones while I was at a day of service volunteer event in Washington today.  Everyone stopped and read the story on their phones.
