What is required

“Love one another as I have loved you.” How eloquently Christ’s teaching was expressed by the Rev. Mark Doty’s article concerning the rights of gay and lesbian couples to marry (BDN, Nov. 3).

The Connecticut court ruling to grant equal rights to all, regardless of sexual orientation, gives hope for a new day when all men and women can live in dignity and honor with the person they love and choose to join in holy matrimony, blessed by their church.

Let this admonition from Micah (6:8) guide us all as we go forward: “He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”
