Living Authentically

I am an ordained Unity minister serving a church in Ames, Iowa. I have a daughter who is transgendered and transitioning to male, although she defines herself as gender queer. My other daughter is straight and happily married. Their father and I divorced after he came out of the closet in 1989. It was the best thing he could have ever done for all of us. It allowed us all to live authentic lives and be the individual beings that we are. I have been happily remarried for 16 years. I live in a state where gay marriage is legal and I am delighted to perform this ceremony whenever I am asked. When I hear people say that marriage is between a man and a woman, I want to speak up and say, “NO IT IS NOT! You are confusing form with the essence of marriage!” Marriage is between two people who love each other and are willing to make a commitment to each other. No exceptions!
