My father is a voting delegate at the convention for the Lutheran Church of America. This afternoon he will vote in favor of blessing same-sex unions and allowing non-celibate gay pastors. During his time in Florida he has met the wonderful members of Soul Force and GoodSoil. They are doing some really great work! We can all learn from their energy and dedication.
According to my father, we will probably lose this vote. However, there is hope within the Lutheran Church and evidence that things are changing.
Thanks Dad for being an ally and fighting homophobia from within the church!
