ReconcilingWorks

Reconciling works rev

ReconcilingWorks: Lutherans for Full Participation advocates for the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Lutherans in all aspects of the life of their Church and congregations.

 

We provide a place of comfort and safety. We reach out to teach that Christ's message, the Gospel, is for everyone equally. We advocate for systemic change in policy and practice in church and society, working to alleviate not only the painful symptoms of oppression but also to eliminate its root causes.


 


Gaychurch.org is a gay affirming Christian web site that contains one of the largest world-wide gay "welcoming" church directories and gay Christian bulletin boards in the world. The site also contains numerous articles on a wide range of subjects as well as in-depth studies on reconciling ones faith with their sexual orientation. These articles are presented in both English and Spanish. The site also features a Christian art gallery.
 
 

Being a Christian can sometimes be difficult, but being a gay Christian can prove to be more complicated.

WHEREAS further disclosure and transparency concerning the reasons for the closure of Grace Lutheran Church in San Francisco are needed, particularly as this pertains to the pastorate of Pastor Megan Rohrer; and

WHEREAS it appears that a full disclosure of the litigation in which Pastor Rohrer and Grace Lutheran Church were involved to the Members of the Sierra Pacific Synod in Assembly might well have resulted in a different election result when Pastor Megan Rohrer was elected as Bishop of the Sierra Pacific Synod; and

WHEREAS Bishop Rohrer exhibited a lack of Christian grace, toward their staff and Pastor Nelson Rabell-Gonzalez, in the handling of the issues surrounding Pastor Nelson Rabell-Gonzalez and the congregation of Mision Latina Luterana (now known as Iglesia Santa Maria Peregrina); now, therefore be it

RESOLVED, until such time as these issues are addressed by the National Expression of the ELCA, and either rectified or refuted, and notification given to the church-at-large, Holy Redeemer American Lutheran Church of San Jose:

  • will not participate in Sierra Pacific Synod meetings/assemblies; and
  • will not remit any contributions for the direct support of the Sierra Pacific Synod; and
  • will continue to monitor the situation in the SPS and research cogent questions in order to make a further decision.
