Some thought this was a no-brainer, and one woman said that this was a big part of the reason why she and her family joined the church in the first place. I know that this is a really important issue to a lot of our members, and I'm glad to know for sure that I have the support of the congregation as we move forward in this new reality in Iowa.

It's More or Less Official...
....that I can marry same-sex couples at the church now. Which is not really a surprise, but we had a congregational forum to discuss the matter today after church. It went really well. We did not have an overly large group, but people recognized that offering this is an extension of our Open and Affirming mission statement, and they are supportive.
