First Baptist Sign

FrontSign Our sign made quite an impact on social media after we posted this message in June 2012. We heard from many in the US, as well as folk from Australia and Brazil, all expressing appreciation and gratitude. A Los Angeles blogger even wrote an article entitled Isn’t it Interesting How Some People Get It. Here are some of the messages we received:Rainbow

It makes me proud to be a Haligonian.Queer community appreciates your support.We recently visited Halifax on a cruise. Amazing place. Thank you for your support of the GLBT community. We will be back! It means so much when churches see beyond the text and really understand.

As a straight woman with a number of gay relatives, it made my heart swell with love at the message of acceptance and love that your church embraces. If I lived in NS, I’d join your church!

I am gay and Jewish, but when I see a message like that, I feel I should go out of my way and say a big thank you. It’s nice to feel loved not hated.

As a Christian I find it very inspiring as it shows the true faith of your community. As a Lesbian I find it to be the most heart warming and uplifting thing I’ve seen in a very long time.
