Public+ Intentional+Explicit= PIE
Happy inclusive and radical Valentine's Day!
We are one month from Affirming PIE Day.
On 14 March 2019, serve up some Affirming pie and PIE
in your ministry and community! 
Happy Valentine's Day! We hope you're celebrating an inclusive Valentine's Day of all sizes, shapes, colours, and relationships. 

This is your one month reminder: Don't give up pie or PIE for Lent!  
Public+Intentional+Explicit= PIE. These are the standards for a real and radical welcome for LGBTQIA2S+ people in our church. On March 14, draw the circle wide and join in! Host a story telling event complete with pie and join many others across the land and the church as we learn together how to offer this welcome.  All traditions and backgrounds welcome: you do not need to be a United Church ministry or member to join the fun. All PIE stories are an important source of inspiration (and possibly nutrition).

Planning resources, full info, and event sign up and calendar: 

Remember: this is all about you and your ministry! If you’re planning an event, please remember to sign up here

Now, about that video we keep promising:

We at Affirming Connections and Affirm United/ S'affirmer Ensemble are, uh, beavering away at the video, which includes stories from Affirming ministries from the West Coast to the East. Our hosts take us through a journey of pie and what PIE (Public, Intentional, and Explicit) can mean for you in your own context. You will have free access to the video by March 4 and can plan to show it at your PIE event or for any Affirming initiative.

Who are our lovely hosts? Stéphane Youdom and Pam Rocker (above) are our storytellers, along with at least four Affirming ministries.  Look forward to meeting them soon!
