I got this letter and thought I’d post it here with permission of the letter writer.
Say, got a question.
Recently a person inquired with me as to whether I’d perform what they called a “ceremony of commitment”. These are two elderly people. Because of medical insurance purposes, they can’t legally marry without the one spouse losing their insurance. They want to live together in marriage and honor God with a ceremony, but they can’t legally do it.
What’s a pastor to do in a situation like this? Do you have any advice?
As always, thanks, Christmas blessings,
