A Methodist congregation in Austin, Texas stood, cheered, and applauded after a gay man made a surprise marriage proposal on the altar during the church service.
Writes Trevor Harper:
“We were asked to share our faith story in front of our congregation at First United Methodist Church of Austin. This is a church that has welcomed us and changed our lives. All are welcome, no exceptions. As members of this incredible church family we have grown as Christians, individuals, and as a couple. After 9 years together, I couldn’t think of a better way to ask him to be my husband. Your sexuality does not define your right to live a spiritual, Christ-filled life. We are instructed to love and it is that simple. We are blessed beyond our wildest imagination.”
