Rev Jane Spahr: "Love and Justice Meet Together"

Rev. Jane Spahr is doing justice again.

She is being taken to church court for officiating at 16 weddings for gay couples. Of course, Janie has been on trial before for this type of holy subversive behavior. This time it is different in that these weddings were legal marriages in California before Prop Hate was passed.

Janie, ever hospitable, is inviting everyone to the trial.

Why does she do it?

Spahr says, “To turn my back on the love and life-long commitments of these wonderful couples would have gone against my faith, the ministry where I was called, and most of all, against God’s amazing hospitality and welcome where love and justice meet together.”
