David Birch To All The Mothers In My Life

David Birch, St. Stephen Church
This penning was inspired by my two sisters from another mother whose mother recently went home and who have chilrun who are away...

To all the mothers in my life, both needed and true!
To all the mothers in my life, this salute is for you.
You were there when you really didn’t always have the desire,
Many times to damper or put out our real or perceived fires.
You were there to correct, protect or project special things within our minds.
Things sometimes thought not relative for the times.
Though all have not birthed me, I value each one of you.
On this special day, you deserve things reserved especially for you.
Some of you may be sisters, cousins, related or not;
This day I ask God to give His best like it or not you’re the crème of the crop.
Some of you are hurting, missing those not so near;
With thoughts of them lingering ever so dear
Just know you’ll see them some sweet day be it here or on the other side;
Until then keep pleasant thoughts of those you love planted deeply in your mind.
To all the mothers in my life, all needed and true!
Today I salute you for you are a gift from God, ever so true!

Lovingly penned by DJ Birch

My Two Cents On Same-Sex Marriage (For What It's Worth)

President Obama came out of the closet, so to speak, on same-sex marriage. While I support him as President, I disagree with the president in this instance. Let me state further, that while I have voted in all presidential elections of late, there has not been one candidate for whom I have I voted that I have agreed with on all important theological issues, including President Obama. That being said, I believe President Obama has done an admirable job, all things considered. So, here are my two cents, for what its worth, on same-sex marriage:

Marriage, divorce, homosexuality, procreation, contraception, reproductive technologies can be examined within the same theological framework, and that is by examining what God has to say about marriage. The foundational command of Scripture is for a man and woman to be fruitful and multiply within the confines of marriage. Genesis 1:27-28 states, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” God hates divorce. Matthew 19:6 states, “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” “Fruitfulness,” or natural reproduction is only possible in a male and female union (1 Corinthians 7:2-4).

Marriage is a God-ordained institution with strong biblical basis and is subject to civil, moral, and spiritual laws. Nowhere does the Bible affirm same sex relationships or marriage. Both the old and new testaments affirm procreation as a main purpose for marriage. God commanded Noah and his sons to be “fruitful and multiply (Gen. 9:1)” and promised “fruitfulness” to Abraham (Gen. 12:2; 13:16; 15:5), Isaac (Gen. 26:4, 24), and Jacob (Gen. 28:14; 35:11).

There is no place in the bible where God remotely suggests that two people of the same sex should have sex or marry. I stand by what God has to say about the matter. What say you?
