    Thank you for posting this. their courage is commendable and their pain is undeniable. I am beginning to think that clergy trials by themselves will not move the bishops to act. They are probably bracing themselves for a handful of trials per year. However, if large numbers of congregations permit same sex weddings in their sanctuaries, by other denominations’ pastors, there will be little the bishops can do. This would multiply the pressure without allowing the bishops to get rid of the troublemakers. Could they try a church’s board of trustees or council? I don’t think they will put laity on trial. The next phase in this struggle for equality will be led by the laity.

    1. Jeff,
      Thank you so much for your comment and affirmation! I am looking up a bit more lately with recent news, The Lord works in mysterious ways sometimes and God’s timing isn’t in tune with our own.

      Be well!
      Christine
