More needs to be done

February 2, 2018

I was there in ’88 and was obviously not aware of the dissent that existed within our congregation. Many people were upset when discussion ensued while studying sexual orientation. People were very set in their opinions and not open to any opposing views. Some decided to leave the church on account the mess they saw us in. 

 

Ten years later, after church board decision lead by our minister, we held our first gay wedding. Again many members were disgusted and again left the congregation. 

 

Thirty years later we are still having the same discussions but have progressed somewhat. More needs to be done.
