Wedding for all during the church day


At the German Protestant Kirchentag from 24 to 28 May in Berlin and Wittenberg, the Evangelical Church Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia (EKBO) sets a sign for equal rights. For the campaign # Wedding For All she is currently looking for five couples who want to make the knot during the church day – the sexual orientation does not matter.While most of the other state churches have at best blessed registered partners, homosexual and heterosexual couples have been given equal treatment in the EKBO since last summer ( reported1). Instead of discussing discrimination against gays and lesbians at the Kirchentag for the umpteenth time, the center “Berlin.Future.Church”, organized by the EKBO, came up with the idea of ​​making the wedding experience tangible for all.Interested couples can now contact Kevin Jessa via e-mail at The five wedding ceremonies will take place on Saturday, May 27, between 11am and 6pm in the St. Marienkirche. The historic church at the foot of the TV tower can accommodate 900 visitors.There are only two conditions: At least one partner must be Protestant, and the couple must have been at the civil registry office before. The wedding ceremonies, which are published in the program of the Kirchentag, are taken over by Probst Christian Stäblein. Alternatively, a wishful pastor can be brought along. (Cw)
