About twenty years ago, when I was serving on the Presbyterian Church’s special committee to study Human Sexuality, we hosted an evening of conversation, dinner and worship including Communion with members of the committee. This committee of 21 members was appointed by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in 1988. We were appointed because at that time, the Presbyterian Church was, as it continues to be, in turmoil over the “rightful place and inclusion” of gay and lesbian Presbyterians in the life of the church and especially whether gay and lesbian Presbyterians could be ordained as Elders, Deacons and Ministers. In what should have been a great moment of insight, the General Assembly came to the realization that “we as Presbyterians can not address the issues related to homosexuality until we first have a fuller understanding of our theology of human sexuality.” That “moment of insight” was short lived. online invoicing homely.
