What's more, Love Won! St. Stephen's first-ever float won the award for Best Non-Profit Entry from the parade organizers. Credit goes to our amazing accompanist Michael Carr, who came up with the design for our float, which included dance music and a bubble-maker; Michael's partner, Thomas Ellis, woodworker extraordinaire for the framing; and to everyone from the congregation who helped build and prepare it over two Saturdays. Here are some photos to show you what we mean:

|Float slogans: "God's Doors Are Open for All!" and "Love All, Worship One."|

There's only one problem now: How do we top this year's witness in NEXT year's Pride Parade?
