Dear Members & Friends of Ascension,
I am writing to let you know of 2 more opportunities to gather with others from our congregation to take part in “Step 2″ of the discussion about the decisions made at the ELCA Churchwide Assembly this summer, particularly in the area of same gender relationships.
By way of reminder, this phase of the discussion is designed to let everyone present take a few moments to share their thoughts, feelings and reactions to those decisions. It is not a time to discuss and debate options or ideas of how Ascension might respond to those decisions. (That’s what “Step 3″ is all about!) Instead, this is a time to share your own views and also listen to the views of others.
The sessions will be:
- Thursday, December 17 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 20 at 7:00 p.m.
(We will likely try to hold 1-2 more in early January!)
If you can join us, please do! And feel free to forward this to others who might be interested.
Yours in Christ,
