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.

Latest news on the PCUSA committee report

The latest news about the Special Committee to Study Issues of Civil Unions and Christian Marriage confirms what we already know: The church is divided on the issue.

It appears that the special committee's preliminary report, which was supposed to come out soon, will include no recommendations -- meaning that there won't be much for us to study.
