    Hi Steve,

    Regarding a listener’s question of what she should do when asked to give her blessing to her daughter’s up-coming gay marriage, I agree with everything you said, with one exception. You said, in effect, that she should reiterate her love for her daughter and the desire for an on-going relationship, but that the daughter had to understand that she couldn’t bless the marriage. Well and good.
    But then, you said the mother should attend the wedding.
    I’ve always thought that those who attend a wedding are, by their presence, blessing the wedding. If you can’t bless a wedding, should you attend? And if you do attend, isn’t that the message you are sending?

    I so appreciate this ministry, and am a New Life Club member. I listen every morning from the archives, as I prepare breakfast.

  2. MATTHEW 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. { I pray for my enemies last sunday I did, we all need to do it and forgive them also. Even if they need it or not just pray for them because God will bless you for that. But I do not pray for them every day. May Yahweh be with you all. Amen. Thank You Father God for Your word in Jesus name. Amen.}

  3. Oh my, Jeneh so you’re not just a bible quoter. Thanks for sharing and for your prayers. Bless you!
