Thanks for the many comments I've received the last few days about our presentations on the issues of marriage and same-sex marriage. Many of the comments have come from around the country, including requests to use our presentations in other churches (yes!). All of the presentations are posted on a special blog, www.episcopalmarriage.blogspot.com, which you can also reach by clicking HERE. You will need to click "Older Posts" at the bottom of the page to reach Part I, and then scroll to the bottom.
I want to keep the conversation going, both online and in person in our parish. We will have an open discussion at our adult forum on April 10 at about 11:30 am. The presentations will be given again in May on Wednesday evenings and at an all-day Saturday workshop.
To keep this conversation going, I will add articles to episcopalmarriage from time-to-time on topics related to marriage and the inclusion of gay people in the life of the Church. We will try to keep some balance without edging into extremes by presenting multiple viewpoints (and feel free to send me your suggestions). To get that started, I've added an article by a former Presbyterian pastor that appeared a few days ago in Salon.com. It is reposted on episcopalmarriage, and worth your time.
