A year ago, this weekend, 9 couples, members of All Saints, participated in a liturgy to bless their marriages. All of them had been married previously in states where same gender marriages are legal. Together they represented hundreds of years of fidelity, constancy and love. For some in the community this act was too painful to bear and I still miss the members of our church who made the decision to leave. And along with missing them, I am nothing but deeply humbled and fiercely glad to have been a part of a moment resplendent in grace. Congratulations again, to my beautiful brothers and sisters. I am in awe of your courageous love.
