  1. For those who have an hour(!) to spare, this is worth the watch:

    It’s all audio, so you can do other things while the lecture goes on. It’s (in my opinion) a very thorough and comprehensive examination of what the Bible does, and does not, say about homosexuality and LGBT persons.

  2. It seems like they’re dancing rather close to the line here. Can a church openly advocate for (or against) initiative and referendum measures?

  3. March 29? I’ll check my calendar.

    I am respectful and encouraged by any two people, whether same sex or different sex, who make a commitment to each other and do so with an intent to be kind, loving, respectful and supportive. By people who make an effort to not indulge in “power over” one another whether physically or emotionally. What business is it of any one else’s if two people making this commitment to each other through marriage are two men, two women or a woman and a man? How can this possibly be a threat to anyone else’s marriage? There has been plenty of spousal (and child) abuse in heterosexual marriages which certainly does not set a good example. Let’s support loving relationships. Daya Goldschlag
