Clara Gillies! She's our deacon, and she's retiring this Sunday. We love her and we'll miss her serving among us. (Of course, she'll still be hanging out, but after serving for decades as a deacon in the church and on the streets of Buffalo to all those with AIDS, she's due for a rest.)

And this past Buffalo Pride Day, she was one of the Grand Marshalls of the Parade down Elmwood. And apparently, that's a dangerous job, because it looks like she's bleeding in this picture.

Life in the Ministry - scarier than you thought.
