Wilcox named as interim pastor for
Cathedral of Hope in Oklahoma City
The Rev. Bob Wilcox will serve as the interim
pastor of Cathedral of Hope in Oklahoma City to
replace the Rev. Tessie Mandeville who resigned
Wilcox has participated in worship services at
Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, and he delivered a
sermon in Oklahoma City a few weeks ago. He
is a former United Methodist minister and most
recently served as interim pastor of Metropolitan
Community Church in Longview, Tex.
Wilcox is a graduate of Evangelical
Theological Seminary in Naperville, 111.
Rev. Mandeville announced her resignation
last month. Her final Sunday at the church was
During his period as interim pastor, Wilcox
will work with the Oklahoma City congregation
to develop a plan for the future. Ultimately, the
Oklahoma City congregation will determine who
their next pastor will be, according to Cathedral
leaders in Dallas.
Mandeville, in a letter to congregants, said she
decided to resign even though she had not found
other employment. She and her partner will
move to Califormia, where she is from, and
where family and friends are located. "Our
prayer is that God will open up avenues of
employment for Lisa and another ministry job
for me," she said.
Mandeville added, "You have touched my life
in profound ways, and I will always bear in my
heart the mark of Oklahoma City."
The church asked members' prayers for
Mandeville and Wilcox.
"As members of the larger body of Christ, we
rejoice that the spirit will continue to work
through them," said Kris Martin, the church's
Radical Faeries to celebrate Vernal
Equinox at Rainbow Ranch
The Texas Radical Faeries will gather at
Rainbow Ranch Campground March 19-20 to
celebrate the Vernal Equinox with ceremony,
song and dance.
"Most gay people have never heard of the
Radical Faeires, but there are a lot of Faeries out
there. They just don't know it yet," said group
member Fred Mckee.
The organization is pagan by nature, but wel-
comes those from any religion or spiritual path.
Most members feel their spirituality and sexu-
ality are intertwined, because of the balance of
male and female energies, according to Mckee.
The weekend will include an art show, drum
circles and a masturbation workshop.
The group encourages everyone to bring
camping, fishing and boating equipment and
food to share.
Reservations are required, and no one will be
turned away due to lack of funds, Mckee said.
Anyone needing assistance with cost should con-
tact the group in advance by e-mailing gayhip-

women's stuff instead of infiltrate male groups."
With Stonewall, there's no need for a women's
