Celebrating Love’s Power and Marriage for All in NYC
By Fourth Universalist Society of New York City member Julie Taylor
As same sex couples joyfully celebrated the arrival of marriage equality in New York, the political rapidly became personal. Do we get married? And if so, when and where? The Fourth Universalist Society in New York City stepped up to Stand on the Side of Love with the hundreds of couples as they stood in line to pick up marriage licenses in Manhattan. In front of the NYC City Clerk’s office every day for a week, members of Fourth Universalist invited couples to “I Do! Me Too! Wedding Week at Fourth U”, a week long celebration held at the congregation’s Upper West Side home.
