ELCA Assembly Action:
The 2001 Churchwide Assembly has mandated that this church engage in a study on homosexuality and a study on sexuality. The first is to deal with the blessing of same-gender unions and the rostering of persons in committed gay or lesbian relationships. The second is to lead to the development of a social statement on sexuality. View updates, task force minutes, and study guides from the "Faithful Journey" website set up to communicate information about the ongoing study:
