In 1988, the 32nd General Council of the United Church of Canada declared that all people regardless of sexual orientation are welcome as full members of the United Church, and all members are eligible to be considered for ordered ministry. 
Harold Jenner, minister at Lynn Valley United from 1978-1986, was on the working group that brought that groundbreaking declaration to fruition. It is fitting that Harold’s family has chosen to honour his legacy by making the final contribution to the Rainbow Bench and allow Lynn Valley United Church to celebrate PRIDE WEEKEND by ordering the bench to offer a visible, intentional symbol of inclusivity and give a physical representation to church’s becoming an Affirming  Ministry to the community!

Thank you everyone who gave to this project to make the dream of a symbol of inclusivity for LVUC a reality.
