ATLANTA - The United Church of Christ became the first mainline Christian denomination to officially support same-sex marriages when its General Synod passed a resolution yesterday affirming "equal marriage rights for couples regardless of gender." The resolution was adopted in the face of efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gay marriage. It was both a theological statement and a protest against discrimination, said the Rev. John H. Thomas, the president and general minister of the denomination, which has 6,000 congregations and 1.3 million members.

There wasn't a rope line. They didn't need bouncers, either. On the second Sunday of Advent, about 20 souls came for service at the First and St. Stephen's United Church of Christ in Towson. It was a diverse group of worshipers -- older people, younger people, white people, black people, gay people, straight people, Democrats, Republicans. There might even have been a Redskins fan in the congregation, and that would have been all right with the church, too. This is a denomination, after all, that launched a national advertising campaign with a message apparently so controversial -- we accept all worshipers -- that CBS and NBC refused to broadcast it. The 30-second ad shows two bouncers working a rope line in front of a nameless church.

Rick Adist shares the pain felt by Baltimoreans still without power days after Hurricane Irene left the area. Tonight, he's throwing a party to help alleviate it, maybe just a little. Adist, minister at the University Parkway Church of Christ , will be hosting a "Tired of the Dark" party at the Baltimore church Wednesday evening. There will be hot dogs and hamburgers, salads and drinks, topped off with cake. And because the church itself has power, the evening will include a free movie screening in the auditorium, probably of the 2010 animated film "Megamind," which features the voices of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Brad Pitt.
