Here at Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Church in Portland, Maine, we recently celebrated our state’s vote for marriage equality during our Sunday services–an event complete with Standing on the Side of Love-themed cakes!
We had two wedding cakes with same-sex edible marzipan couples as toppers, which the congregation shared during coffee hour. During the service itself, we danced around the sanctuary to commemorate the occasion.
Maine approved marriage equality by ballot measure in November. We are excited to begin having same-sex weddings here at our congregation in the new year!
