To the Editor
“It’s a most unusual time. I keep feeling my temperature climb!”
On Sunday, December 9, twenty-five gay couples processed down the aisle at Seattle First Baptist Church, to be married by Pastor Tim Phillips. Trumpets joined the organ and the choir sang, “May this marriage be blessed, may it be sweet milk, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm.”
The church was full. Everyone stood to sing the “Hallelujah” chorus. Everyone was happy, smiling and hugging! Afterwards the celebration continued downstairs in Fellowship Hall.
“A most unusual time,” indeed! It was a joy simply to be there, surrounded by all that happiness…
