Happy Wedding Day, Ryan and Matthew!

Wandering through the wedding section of the NYT this morning while watching "CBS Sunday Morning News," I bumped into this wedding announcement celebrating the wedding of Ryan and Matthew.  Now what stood out about this announcement was its so Presbyterian. Matthew is a Presbyterian, and is a candidate for ministry in the PCUSA. Even though our Constitution doesn't quite support this union (sigh), nonetheless, they're married in NY. We're hopeful that the Constitution of the PCUSA changes in the next two years to stay "two persons".

What was also nice was that the Rev. Abby Mohaupt, a Presbyterian minister, married them.  This is legl as of last week after my denomination changed the Authoritative Interpretation and voted that ministers or teaching elders have discretion to marry LGBTQ couples.

So Mazel Tov to Ryan, Matthew, Abby, and to the PCUSA!

Here's the link to the announcement:
