From the beginning, my goal in response to the charges brought against me was to reveal as clearly as possible the faithful sources in Scripture, tradition and church law for my decision to officiate at Nancy and Brenda’s marriage ceremony. This is an Apologia, an ancient Christian form of persuasion springing from Paul’s sermons to the Gentiles in the Acts of the Apostles, which I offered to the Permanent Judicial Commission of the Pittsburgh Presbytery for their consideration. Read the Apologia.
The night of the trial in 2008, we held an open worship service for all the Pittsburgh community to join together in prayerful dialogue and celebration. You can read the sermon in support of Brenda and Nancy’s wedding that Rev. Chris Glaser preached that evening and see pictures below.
