Recently, two young women were married at Watts Street Baptist Church in Durham, NC. The mother of one of the women walked her down the aisle to meet her partner at the altar. It was a beautiful wedding officiated by our Pastor with Adults and well attended by members of our congregation who have come to know the brides well and love them and their being a part of our church.
At the reception in the church fellowship hall after the wedding, I spoke with the mother (first, to ascertain that she was the mother) and told her how much we cared for these women. The mother said "I didn't know why they wanted to have a ceremony--but now I do." I learned later that the mother had told her daughter "this can't be a Baptist church--they don't marry Gays."
Thank God we are a church that sees all of God's children as equals and welcomes and affirms each member as they are and where they are.
