More on Marriage

I wanted to add a brief follow up to my reflections on marriage in light of the decision of the Supreme Court.  The media tends to paint these complex issues with a very broad brush but as I read more about the actual decision of the Supreme Court it is clear that we still have significant opportunities to ensure that the definition of marriage that comes from scripture and tradition is upheld.  Let us pray and advocate in our state legislature and in any national forums available to us that our belief that marriage is between one man and one woman should be the law of the land.  I would expect that you will hear much more about this controversy in the weeks and months to come, let us stay anchored in the truth that our loving God has revealed to us and do our best to share this good news with all.
