Good News

This article just in from the BBC: "Iowa upholds gay marriage rights"
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7981893.stm

What remarkable news! My mind goes to Jesus saying, "Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them" (Matthew 18:20). Often we affirm Jesus' presence among us in worship or other church events. Is it too much of a stretch to overlay this scripture on the "gathering" of two or three states that recognize marriage rights for same-gender-loving couples? Where two or three have gathered---Connecticut, Massachusetts, and now (though not yet implemented) Iowa---the presence of God's justice is known.

We pray for more to gather.
