MCC Seattle installs new associate pastor

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Rev. Michelle Carmody was installed as the associate pastor of Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) Seattle July 26. MCC Seattle is the oldest congregation founded by and for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) community in the Pacific Northwest.

"Rev. Carmody brings to our congregation a greater ability to meet the needs of our Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Bisexual community," said Rev. Ray Neal, the senior pastor at MCC Seattle. "Her presence is a statement in itself that we want to be a church for all of God's rainbow creation proclaiming that God loves everyone exactly the way God created them."

Rev. Carmody has been with the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches since 1980 in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She was licensed as MCC Clergy in 1987 and Ordained in 1995. Rev. Carmody has pastored MCC churches in Ashland/Medford, Oregon and Everett, Washington. From 1997 to 2003 she was a volunteer member of the staff of MCC Seattle. Since then, Rev. Carmody has been conducting inter-faith and personal ministry in the Everett, Washington area.

Additionally, she's worked with people with disabilities and the elderly since 1975. Carmody is a certified hypnotherapist with a small private practice. She lives in Everett, Washington with Carol Detrick, her partner of 18 years.

"There is no one outside of God's love," said Rev. Carmody. "MCC is here to bring that love and healing to anyone who will accept it."

Rev. Carmody said she believes strongly in the inherent worth of all people, the oneness of all creation, and the need for the church to address the issues of justice and equality for everyone, as well as healing the wounds that we have inflicted on each other in the name of God.

MCC Seattle will celebrate its 37th anniversary August 23. MCC Seattle currently meets at 12:30 p.m. Sunday afternoons in the Chapel of Temple de Hirsch Sinai, 1441 16th Ave, in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. For more information about MCC Seattle go to www.mccseattle.org.
