Event description

Description

On this day we will remember how the love between men is celebrated in the Bible with the story of David and Jonathan and how the love between women is reflected in the story of Ruth and Naomi. Their stories inspire LGBTQ people and affirm that same-sex couples are blessed by God.

“Your love to me was wonderful, surpassing the love of women,” David said in his famous a lament for Jonathan. Ruth’s famous vows to Naomi are often used in weddings: “Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” (Ruth 1:16) The old-fashioned King James translation, still beloved by many, begins, “Whither thou goest, I will go…” The photo above is “Untitled (David and Jonathan)” by Adi Nes.
