Marriage is one of the most significant institutions in our culture.
The sacred and civil dimensions of marriage are complex and often muddled, which makes marriage one of the most challenging issues to discuss in the church and beyond.
The Supreme Court is set to hear the case that could determine marriage equality in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Many members of our congregation and community will be affected positively and powerfully if the court rules in favor of marriage equality.
On April 27th at 7:00 p.m., we hope you will gather with us to pray for those who will be affected by this ruling. We will witness to the need for a world and a government that respects, affirms, and supports people belonging to the LGBT community and their rights to love, to grow a family, and to fully participate in the community.
“Precious Lord, may we be empowered to remove barriers that stand in the way of what is fair and just, fosters equality, and nurtures us in naturally loving – and being loved by – whomever that may be. For it’s in love, that we find our renewal, ourselves and our God. We pray love wins.”
