Following discussion at the 2019 General Assembly on the matter of human sexuality and the church, the Reverend Amanda Currie, B.A.Sc., M.Div., Moderator of the 2019 General Assembly, has written this pastoral letter to the churches.
“At the same time, there is a diversity of practice and belief among us in many areas, including our understanding of human sexuality. While some within our church hold to a traditional definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman only, others believe that covenanted monogamous relationships between two adults, regardless of gender, can be faithful to God’s design for human families.
“We have prayed, studied, discussed, and debated these questions for many years, and although individuals have shifted in their perspectives, our denomination continues to include a broad spectrum of belief and it is likely that this will always be the case.” (Please click the link below to continue reading the Moderator’s complete letter.)
