Session II – Discussions of ELCA Social Statement on Human SexualityMay 04, 2019
Discussions on Human Sexuality Statement: BLC Members should have received a special mailing recently about action the Church Council intends to take at our May meeting to affirm that our co-pastors are guided by the ELCA Social Statement in their roles as pastoral caregivers and provide the full range of pastoral care to all of God’s people. According to their discretion and discernment, pastoral care may include solemnizing or presiding over a same-gender marriage.
In preparation for this meeting, you are invited to participate in conversations facilitated by the co-pastors with members of Council present. Session II will be presented May 9 at 6 pm and between services on May 12. We hope you will make every effort to participate in these conversations. If you did not receive a letter and would like to learn more, please contact the church office. Your presence and perspective in these discussions is important.
