Southern African Anglicans in conversation on LGBTI pastoral care

by

From the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (posted on its Facebook page):

The Anglican Church of Southern Africa’s Provincial Synod is today beginning discussion on a resolution on pastoral care to people of LGBTI orientation.

Proceedings began with Synod going into Conference, with a mediated panel discussion on the issue. Snippets of the debate can be found on the ACSA Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AnglicanMediaSA

The panel comprised, from left, Paul Germond, the facilitator, Dr Miranda Pillay, a theologian, the Rev Londiwe Zulu, a Methodist minister who spoke from a lesbian’s perspective, & Bishop Martin Breytenbach, who believes that it is too early to take a decision on approving same-sex unions.

The Synod then broke into seven-person groups to carry the discussion further.

Prayers ascending that the Church take this bold step forward in recognising married LGBTI clergy and providing prayers of blessing for committed same-gender couples!

Wrong question. It's not "How do we straight people minister to LGBT Christians?" but "How do we get over our bias so we can minister together as disciples of Jesus?" See first the log...
