Forrest Church watch: 'Good Morning America' edition.
Speaking of anniversaries: The Rev. Dr. Forrest Church, minister of All Souls Church in Manhattan and perhaps the best-known Unitarian Universalist minister currently serving, appeared on "Good Morning America" today. Why? you ask:
One-hundred-twenty-five couples said "I do" all over again during "GMA's" vow renewal special in New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom. Those couples — who have been married for a total of 2,409 years and have 277 children between them — stood before members of the clergy and their family members and said they'd marry each other all over again.
Love isn't the only thing that brought 125 couples together to renew their vows, however. "While the couples were more than happy with just the opportunity to renew their vows, they knew a few would also win a second honeymoon on the Norwegian Dawn, one of the world's most luxurious cruise ships," ABC News reports. Because it's television and anything is possible on TV, they all won! After the crowd "went wild," Michael Bolton sang. It brings a tear to the eye, don't it?
