Transcript CONNECTIONS: MCCA WELCOMES ASSISTANT PASTOR by Gerry Tarr There's a new face in town. He's a 33-year-old, 5'10" Aquarian with'dark brown hair, brown eyes and a dark moustache. His name is A. Edward Paul and he has just moved here from Pensacola, Florida. What brings him to Austin? Trust and faith in God. Reverend Ed Paul will -be assistant pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church of Austin. His first Sunday with the staff is September 7. On Sunday, September 13, Rev. Paul will be installed as Assistant Pastor at the 12 noon worship service. The community is invited to attend this joyous event. Rev. Paul is a licensed minister within the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches. He has an A.A. Degree from Pensacola Junior College, a B.A. Degree in Bible and a Th. B. Degree in Theology (equivalent to a M.A. in Bible) from Alabama Christian School of Religion. He also has a year of work on a degree in chemical research at the University of West Florida and is a licensed cosmetologist. Ed Paul has been a leader in gay activism in Pensacola. He helped found MCC-Pensacola and has been their worship coordinator for the past two years. He developed great rapport with the press - newspaper, television and radio. He had numerous speaking engagements at local universities and junior colleges and has also made television and radio appearances. MCCA welcomes Rev. Ed Paul to Austin and we are proud to add him to the staff. MCCA invites the community of Austin and the surrounding areas to meet Rev. Ed Paul and get to know him. Hff'rOS ON THE RANGE Canada (IGNA) - The popular notion that the Western frontier was settled by farming families under a strict regime of law and order has been challenged by recently assembled evidence that male homosexual activity may have been a widespread aspect of settlement. Australian writer Terry Chapman has written a study called "Sexual Deviations in Western Canada: 1890-1920," revealing that criirdnal records of the period relating to buggery, sodomy, gross indecency, and indecent assault on males indicate the occurrence of much homosexual activity. Ms. Chapman found that prosecutions were common. She accounts for the widespread activity by noting that males greatly outnumbered females during the settlement period and that logging and mining isolated large numbers of men together in remote locations. Wayde Frey and Dianne Draper DIANNE DRAPER STARTS MCC LUBBOCK by Gerry Tarr During the past 5 years, Dianne Draper has been an intregal part of the Metropolitan Community Church of Austin. She was a founding member when the group received "Study Group" status from the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches. She was with MCCA when "Mission" status was received and she was one of the thirty charter members when MCCA became a full- fledged church. Dianne felt the calling to preach the word of God. Her early Bible background prepared her well. She became an Exhorter (student minister) in MCCA and continued her religious education. She has served the congregation of MCCA with a loving heart. UFMCC continues to be the fastest-growing organization which reaches out specifically to the gay community. Reverend Candace Naisbitt, pastor of MXA and UFMCC District Coordinator, had received many requests from the people of Lubbock, Texas, to start a Metropolitan Community Church in their city. Rev. Naisbitt decided the Lord could use Dianne's talents there. MCC Lubbock held their first worship service in July, 1980, with Exhorter Dianne Draper officiating. Dianne has been commuting between Lubbock and Austin for Sunday services since that time. She is now moving permanently to Lubbock to be MCCL worship coordinator. MX Lubbock is currently a study group with an average of 35 people attending each worship service. Since the church cannot own property until they are incorporated, one of the members has purchased a house for Dianne to live in. They are an eager group with a lot of drive and determination. We are sorry to lose Dianne Draper but we are happy knowing she will be with people who love her and will care for her. We send Dianne off with our love and our prayers for her work and service for MX Lubbock.
