Good Timing!

Today the Supreme Court quietly brought our country one step closer to marriage equality. The court denied to review pending appeals to rulings in favor of same-sex marriage in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin. This is a big moment for equality. It means that loving couples in those states can get married immediately, and I paves the way for even more progress. This truly is good news!

It is good timing, coming on the heels of the Pride Parade (see link below to read Nicole Melki’s blog on what that meant to her), arriving the day before the birthday of Desmond Tutu, a passionate Christian bishop with a heart for diversity and equal rights for all, and anticipating the readers’ theatre performances this weekend of The Laramie Project (at Northaven on the 10th and East Dallas Christian on the 11th).

Perhaps this all means that the day is just around the corner for marriage equality in all states. I am happy to be alive and doing ministry in a place that celebrates today.
