Resolution (adopted 4/19/09)
Whereas same-sex couples now have the legal right to marry in Iowa . . .
Whereas many committed same-sex couples are interested in embracing the institution of marriage . . .
In order to provide support to committed same-sex couples and in hopes of strengthening the institution of marriage, be it hereby resolved that the First Unitarian Church of Sioux City will:
provide support and encouragement to committed same-sex couples who wish to get married,
advertise this commitment on our website and through other appropriate methods, and
facilitate, host, and provide a community witness to committed same-sex couples who ask us for such.
To provide an evolving dynamic religious community, open to all, to celebrate and respect diversity and diverse spirituality.
To learn from, empathize with, and encourage people in their personalspiritual quest.
