Last year, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church USA appointed a Special Committee to Study Issues of Civil Union and Christian Marriage. The committee was given two years to study how the theology and practice of marriage have developed in the Reformed tradition and the place of covenanted same-gender partnerships in the Christian community.

This adult education course tries to do something similar over an eight-week period for St. Andrew Presbyterian in Iowa City. Throughout this discussion, we hope to hear from class participants’ personal experiences and questions concerning sexuality and the Presbyterian faith.

Better late than never

I finally have the text for the May 29 legal brief Dell Richard prepared for the Session before it voted on Michelle Wikner and Michelle Norman's request to use the sanctuary for their wedding.

Dell has provided a short update update on the legal decisions within the PCUSA since the Session vote.

We were supposed to have read these documents and be ready to discuss them during our Sept. 27 class -- but that hardly seems possible.

We'll probably have to wait to discuss them until next week.
