Same Sex Blessings
Dear St. Andrews
As a committee, we have been working hard on developing a process of discussion and discernment around blessing same-sex relationships.
To the right is a FAQ that you can download to help answer some of the questions you may have. You will also find a question box at the church (by the prayer request station) for you to offer feedback to the committee. We are, of course, happy to speak to you in person, but should that feel to uncomfortable, we wanted to offer another option.
To help each of us consider what we think now and to help guide our work, please fill out a brief survey either by filling out a paper version available Sunday or by clicking on the survey link to the right. The content is the same on both formats.
Please mark Wednesday, May 25, June 1 and June 8 (7:15pm) on your calendars! We will gather on these evenings to reflect and share about how we interpret scripture, what the Bible says about sexuality, some history of marriage and divorce in the church and where we are at in our culture.
There will also be an opportunity on Sunday, May 29 at 9:15am for listening and sharing together and for Q&A.
We realized that the planned date for the Special Meeting (Sun June 19) is Father’s Day and so we are recommending to Parish Council to change it to Sunday, June 12. Please stay tuned for a final decision.
