Hello joe hubbard
Please consider an absolute separation of Church and State in a bill coming to you soon.

The local news station reported, “Sen. Greg Albritton said his bill "truly separates the church and the state."”

THAT, dear Senator, will be true when the State refuses to hear Christian divorce cases, particularly those involving innocent spouses in no-fault divorce cases.

Judges should not only recuse themselves from issuing marriage licenses to those that offend their religious beliefs, but should recuse themselves from divorce cases that are abominations to God.

The Constitutional religious freedoms of the innocent spouse in a no-fault divorce are being infringed upon by the spouse filing for the divorce.

The couple solemnized their vows of marriage as a covenant not only with their spouse, but a covenant with God, bound for the rest of their life for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.

Both spouses made the covenant with every faith the other would hold true, being an honorable spouse for the rest of their lives. Lives and hearts are committed, decisions made to put their singular lives away with the faith that their spouse will be their exclusive love, their helpmate for the rest of their life. All others are forsaken, ending all opportunities for a family life with someone else.

This is one of the most important decisions of one's life, not taken lightly as a Christian, which makes divorce a heartbreaking, soul-crushing dilemma for the innocent spouse who now finds themself looking at the rest of their life without the intimate love and companionship of a spouse.

God instructs us how to handle someone with an issue with a fellow Christian; in this example - their spouse. They must first do everything to resolve the problem with their spouse, speaking to them about the issue and possible resolutions. If that doesn't work, they must together take the issue up before 2 or 3 trusted Christians. If the spouse still refuses to reconcile, then the issue goes before Church leadership. Then and only then can a marriage be dissolved.

It is well out of the jurisdiction of a civil court to interpret Church law, and ILLEGAL, according to the US Constitution.

If the filing spouse is Catholic, they can be banned from ever receiving the Eucharist for the rest of their life. They must go to their Bishop for permission to divorce first, which will not be granted very easily. One must show some sort of physical or extreme mental abuse, danger to life or deceit in the marriage ceremony itself. The Catholic Church instructs in its Catechism that possible divorce filers must request the canonical authorization as a necessary precaution, to prevent civil court judgments which violate divine law.

So lets indeed separate Church and State, taking the courts out of the marriage business altogether, which includes dissolution of marriage.

A husband, father of three, and recovering lawyer and politician. A grand and Holy adventure on the Jesus Way. Joe is from Alabama, but he has participated in mission trips to Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota since he was 12 years old.

Now, 25 years later, after careers in law and politics in Alabama, Joe is discerning a call to Native ministry in the Episcopal Church. Joe and Ashley’s willingness to raise their three young children, Hill, Hattie, and Hannah, on a reservation shows me how this call has convicted them both. Joe has a heart for the work of reconciliation and healing, and his desire to undertake that work at the ma

The Marks We Carry

I long feared baldness (which has afflicted all the men in my family except Hill and me). It wasn't so much the prospect of a head without hair -- my youngest brother Charlie has a beautiful bald head -- so much as the proposition that the marks my hair masked for most of my life would be exposed, naked to the world.

Thin Places

The ancient Celts might had a term for a space where Heaven and earth almost touch. They called such a space a "thin place." As the Celtic saying goes, "Heaven and earth are only three feet apart, but in thin places that distance is even shorter." As I have become more aware of the presence of God in my life, it has been almost impossible to ignore the presence of God in the world around me. [ 832 more words ]

The Cost of Freedom

When I was a teenager, I was active in a youth community in the Episcopal church called Happening. We held spiritual retreats for high school kids twice a year, where a ragtag band of us freewheeling teenagers, dressed in our finest flea market attire, would shower each other with Pixy Stix dust and hugs, would lead each other in worship, and would share with each other the deepest and most vulnerable parts of our lives in hopes of understanding how it all fit in the mystery of God's purpose for us.

Leaving home. And finding it.

As our process of formal discernment transitions to formation for ministry, Ashley and I recognize that a chapter in our family's life is closing.
