The Rev. Susan-Lynn Johns and Melanie Pudvah attend a welcoming congregation gathering at the UU Church in Montpelier. 

Susan-Lynn and Melanie met with other Unitarian Universalist congregations to discuss the ministry involved in being a welcoming congregation. A luncheon was provided and several ideas were brought up in conversation afterwards. Below is a group photo of the gathering in front of the Montpelier UU Church. As flags and banners were held and waved, many blew horns in support of the LGBTQ community as the picture was being taken.
