As we continue to grieve the death of Rev. Elder Freda Smith, a saint, pioneer, activist, and iconic MCC pastor, we invite you to join us in celebration her life organized by Freda's widow, Kathleen Meadows; pastor, Rev. Terri Miller; and Rev. Troy Perry, founder of Metropolitan Community Churches.
Memorializing Rev. Elder Freda Smith
Rev. Elder Freda Smith has inspired a generation of women, lesbians, and people of every gender and orientation. Just yesterday, we learned that Freda was placed into hospice care, and today we heard that she died. We give thanks for the compassionate care of hospice, and we pray for her long-time spouse of 40 years, Kathleen Meadows.
There aren't many people in the history of the movement of Metropolitan Community Churches that have been as instrumental as Rev. Elder Freda Smith. And, we pause together to give thanks and to honor her life and her contribution. Not only did she inspire and change MCC, she also worked tirelessly and courageously in her state of California for legislative change as an early political activist.
