New Zealand Gay Marriage Law Passes

New Zealand Gay Marriage Law Passes

New Zealand becomes the first country in the Asia-Pacific region to legalize gay marriage.  Magic ensues (in the form of a traditional Maori love song – make sure to watch the video!)

When there is so much bad news, in the midst of it, we can feel that place inside our chest – the one that used to hold our heart – slowly hollowing out, dulling us to evil, yes, but also good.  So we lift up this important moment of hope.  We lift up these lawmakers.  We lift up their love song – because it is, after all, Your song – and our song, too.  Amen.
