Wedding benefits youth

David Anderson, president of Grace University Lutheran Church, Minneapolis, married his longtime partner John Garver on Sept. 8. The invitation not only invited all children to participate in a procession at the beginning of the service, but in lieu of gifts the couple created a registry at Target for items needed by a Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota program for homeless youth, many of whom are gay. Along with a huge pile of gifts, there were more than $1,500 in cash, checks and gift cards for the program.
