Holy Union / Holy Matrimony
To have a Holy Union or Holy Matrimony performed by Gentle Spirit Christian Church requires that the couple have lived together a minimum of six months or have dated in a monogamous relationship for at least one year. Within six months of the completion of pre-marital counseling, and at the discretion of the pastor, the Holy Union/Holy Matrimony may take place.
Among other self-improvement issues we advocate for in the gay and lesbian community is an awareness of the persuasiveness of alcohol and drugs. We believe it is especially important that as we grow as spiritual beings we be aware of what we are doing to our bodies and minds with alcohol and recreational drugs.
The Facts of Life
Because American culture -- and the gay and lesbian community in particular -- is so youth-oriented, we often forget that we will all die someday. Even though our community has become more aware of death thanks to the presence of AIDS and breast cancer among us, we rarely plan for the inevitable.
