As people of God, it is important for us to constantly be engaged in relevant and helpful study and discussion of how we live together through our common faith in Jesus Christ despite our differences. Here you will discover a wide diversity of well educated, strongly held opinions and theological understandings while emphasizing a shared commitment to the common mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). This is about being church together in the midst of differing views on human sexuality.
The intent of this site is to post and share significant offerings of perspectives by Lutheran teaching theologians and others of how we can be church together and continue in earnest dialogue with one another, challenging our thinking and partnership in Christ Jesus.
In the weeks following the 2009 Churchwide Assembly, ELCA bishops from across the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands responded with letters to their local synod leaders. Read what they had to say.
