Wedding Officiant

It gives me great pleasure to announce that I am now available to officiate wedding ceremonies. And, yes, it will be my humble honor to perform both traditional and “non-traditional” unions. Gender and spiritual diversity are embraced and enriched by the power of love.

Many of you know of my previous training in religious philosophy and worldwide traditions; some of you may even be aware that I attended Yale Divinity School long ago with the goal of ordination into the Episcopal Church. As the years came and went, those studies and aspirations seemed to belong to the distant life of a foreign soul far, far away.

But now the past clears and the future beckons. Through all that I’ve learned, unlearned, and eventually relearned, two lights now illuminate my path: 1) The Word of God (dess) is…”Yes.” 2) The lesson in the School of Life is…”Love.” Simple truths, but not necessarily easy ones for some of us to accept.

So here’s my offer: If you know of a couple who are seriously considering marriage, I’d be happy to meet with them and discuss the possibilities. Being a bit of a writer, I’d be happy to help with vows. Spiritual traditions are no barrier; from Episcopal to Pagan, I can embrace pretty much anything if you can show me what’s in your hearts.

Nor should financial considerations be an impediment. That ought to be the last thing a couple worries about when it comes to uniting their souls in love.

In short, I am at your service.

Bucolic blessings to one and all,

Matthew Thuney

Testing and so forth. Lisa Shoemaker has sent me a packet of flyers. One of the things is an invitation to a Tuesday night group for young men ages 19-25. "Young Men Together," it's called. A place to learn, share and grow. Every other Tuesday 5:30-7:00pm beginning 4/15/03. Call or stop by for more information. 360-676-4593 or visit HIV/STD Program 1500 N. State #201, Bellingham.

Other groups are possible as well. I met with Lisa and mentioned interest in things for older men, such as an over 40s group. She said the conference room is available and she can put energy toward different aspects of the community if the interest is there.

They also sent a brochure with clinic hours for things like HIV testing including some new Tuesday evening hours.

Queer Women of Bellingham

Ultimately meant to be a social networking site for all identifying women (Lesbian, Bi, Transgender, etc.) of all ages of the local community. There are forums for discussions about issues, planned "get togethers", or anything else you can think of. Local female identified queer musicians, artists, authors, shop owners, etc. will be promoted as well so that we can help to support each other as well. Eventually I would like it to be something where we meet once a month in real life over dinner, however, there would need to be enough dedicated people who really want to build a community within our community.
