On Being Married

Greetings from Frozen Montana. We have two seasons, Winter and July. It is almost cold enough to start telling “how cold is it” jokes.

You Can Get Married – Wait – No, You Can’t – But Wait

I can only imagine how confusing it is to live in a state that gives rights and takes them back. My job is easy here, if the couple has a license issued by the state, I can marry them, if not, I can do a commitment ceremony but the couple will not have all of the rights, protections and privileges that come with the license. As an ordained minister, my hands are not tied by a Higher Power, my hands are tied by the voters.
