It was a lovely sunny Saturday this past weekend when Kira Rabut Azzam and Nikki Salde said their wedding vows at Wesley UMC in San Jose, CA in the presence of their family and church members. Rev. Michael Yoshii, their pastor at Buena Vista UMC, officiated the marriage ceremony. With 200 guests in attendance, Rev. Yoshii addressed the couple and said “you remind us that in this world of human suffering and injustice, that God’s love present within the two of you, is present with all of us all well!”

Outside the church, a group of over 50 reconciling United Methodists from the California-Nevada Conference gathered and formed a “Circle of Love” – a public witness of support for this same-sex marriage which also launched their “Season of Love” actions. Holding signs and banners, they sang, prayed, and spoke of God’s love for all people. In a press conference attended by Frank Schaefer, defrocked by his conference for officiating the wedding of his own gay son, the group shared their vision of a fully inclusive UMC. Please check the RMN Facebook Page for a complete coverage of this witness. For ideas and ways to support and participate in “Season of Love” please go to their website www.seasonoflove.info.
