On Tuesday night, the PCUSA became the largest protestant denomination to marry same-gendered couples.
I couldn’t be more proud to be a Presbyterian.
A few years back I reflected on the movement toward full inclusion (https://presbygal.wordpress.com/2011/09/29/when-we-disagree-as-presbyterians/) and sadly, there have been a number of churches that have opted to leave the denomination. Back in September of ’11, I wrote that my joy was tempered.
Today? It’s simply joy. No tempering, no modification. Pure joy.
For 36 years I’ve been aware of the discontinuity between what we as a church have preached, and how Jesus has asked us to live.
Finally, that tension has eased and has been replaced with joy.
And now… to work.
