Dr. Jay on the Radio

What a treat to hear my good friend Jay Johnson in this piece on KQED radio:

Presbyterians Try Minister Over Same Sex Marriages
A retired Presbyterian minister is facing sanctions from her own denomination for performing same sex marriages. The Reverend Jane Spahr went on trial today before a church panel in Napa.

She stands accused of violating the church's constitution when she married more than a dozen same-sex couples between June and November of 2008 -- the period when gay marriages were legal in California. Host Stephanie Martin talks about the trial with Dr. Jay Johnson, a theologian at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley.
