|Pastor Brad Froslee|
... I'm sad for what is likely a hurting family, for a state let down by a leader, and for an impending vote that is about division and weighing a relationship solely on the gender of the two people, and says nothing of love, covenant-making and faithfulness.
And perhaps I'm a little sad and yet strangely relieved, in watching this soap opera unfold in the media, with the reality that no constitutional amendment can truly defend marriage.
Then my sadness calls for something more. I am brought back to that place of love and sentimentality.
I am holding onto compassion and hope, for Koch and her family, for our state, and for a citizenry who can overcome division and stand on the side of love for all of Minnesota's families.
We know that marriage matters and applaud Rev. Froslee's public support of marriage, his compassion for people of all views regarding the amendment, and for all of his continued ministries in our state.
