No exegetical evidence presented!!

The author falls into the trap of putting experience at the same level as scripture which is unacceptable. Absolutely no exegetical evidence is given to support his position. It would be better to read and study Robert A. J. Gagnon's exegetical work on homosexual practice published by Abingdon. It takes a more serious approach to scripture.

Why the heading "Homosexuality and the Church"?

I don't understand the purpose of the heading "Homosexuality and the Church" on this article. I can see how the subject of the article speaks to that issue, but the subject of the article is far larger than the issue of homosexuality. I would say that the article addresses something foundational and the issue of homosexuality is subordinate. The reference to homosexualiy in the heading confuses this. Subsequently, the article makes no outright mention of homosexuality, although the heading makes it clear that the editor is leading the audience to read between the lines and draw conclusions.

Notable Quotes   


         "We need to be gentle with ourselves and give ourselves permission to grieve continued injustice and denominational harm. Lent is maybe the best time of the liturgical year to pause and sit with whatever we are feeling or not feeling right now, especially before we make big decisions. It brings to mind what the disciples might have gone through in those days between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, when maybe they could affirm there would be more to the story but did not yet know what new life was going to come forth."

– T. C. Morrow in a sermon, "Stay the Course," given Sunday, March 17 at Foundry UMC, Washington, D.C. Republished with permission from her Facebook page.
