The Feast of the Expulsion

Abstract: Anniversary of the expulsion of St. Francis and First United from the ELCA.

On Dec. 31, 1995, the ELCA expelled St. Francis and First United, the two SanFrancisco churches that were instrumental in calling and ordaining Pastors Ruth Frost, Phyllis Zilhart, and Jeff Johnson in January of 1990.
At St. Francis, December 31 is observed as the Feast of the Expulsion. We're not sure what kind of observance was planned for this year's Feast, but activity on the St. Francis Web site has exceeded the server's alotted bandwidth.
