The Courage to Love

The Courage to Love

In a scene in Shakespeare’s romantic play, Romeo and Juliet, Juliet takes her place atop the balcony and says, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Translation: A rose will always be a rose.  

More than a famous line, these words remind us that love can never be anything other than love, and it blooms inside our hearts, regardless of sexual orientation.

Such is the case with Annie Scholl and her partner, Michelle, and Rev. Ken Daigle and his partner, JD, two same-sex couples who keep spirituality and togetherness at their core.
