Couple Asks For Blessings For UMC Lesbian Wedding Ceremony in Texas, August 27

From: "U.M. Cornet"

Congratulations and Prayers for Linda and Eleanora

Linda E. Enger and Eleanora (Ellie) N. Piombino will celebrate their 25th anniversary with a covenanting service in Houston this Friday, August 27. Eleanora told the Houston Chronicle religion editor, "On our 20th anniversary, we exchanged wedding bands, that was the first move we ever made toward saying we were a `couple' because we both felt we were not worthy of it. We did it privately between the two of us. After we joined Bering Methodist Church ... we realized we were worthy of Jesus' love. It's no longer `what man thinks.' Because we know Jesus loves us."

Linda wrote to CORNET this morning asking us to keep them in our prayers.

If you would like to send words of congratulations and prayers to the couple, e-mail them to I am going to be "out of pocket" for much of the next few days but will check this mail box as I can (at least once a day through Monday) to see if there is mail.

Also I will do what I can to keep you up-to-date of news articles on the web about this holy event. Watch CORNET's news page at for links to press releases and external news.
