FERNDALE – “All are welcome in the Episcopal Church” is the theme of 10 new billboards unveiled in metropolitan Detroit this month by the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan.
The billboards, part of a marketing strategy launched by the diocese in September, depict the diversity both of the church’s membership and the ways God is experienced by Episcopalians. Those proclaiming the message “I am an Episcopalian” include a Native American woman, an African-American couple, a man in prison, a grieving woman, a little girl with her dog and a soldier at ease. A Ferndale billboard features the rainbow flag symbolizing LGBT people.
The Episcopal Diocese of Michigan includes 92 congregations and four college chaplaincies in southeastern and south-central lower Michigan, with 17 of those in the city of Detroit. For more information visit http://www.edomi.org or call 313-833-4422.
