Brentwood Christian Church & the Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage

Two hands creating a heart
As those of us around the country await the Supreme Court’s ruling that could potentially legalize same-sex marriage nationwide (same-sex marriage isn’t currently legal in Missouri), the General Board of Brentwood Christian Church, at its meeting on May 4, 2015, officially gave its approval for same-sex weddings to be celebrated in our sanctuary. As an open and affirming congregation, Brentwood has consistently expressed its support for equal rights, and the Board wanted to explicitly state that this includes celebrating same-sex weddings as well, in the same manner that might apply to any other wedding viewed as sacred in the eyes of God.

    • That’s a big theological question, and a very important one. If you’re interested in exploring some of the general reasons why, there are some good books available, such as Matthew Vines’ “God and the Gay Christian.” Here is a link to some very good resources on the subject if you’d like to read more.
