...of sexuality study guide

by Pastor Gary Jepsen (Pilgrim Lutheran Church, Puyallup, WA)

This page, while formatted for the new website, contains links to the original, un-reformatted documents.

It is important for ELCA members to participate in the process leading up to the 2005 Churchwide Assembly’s consideration of the two questions on homosexuality. To help with the process, Pastor Gary Jepsen, who serves Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Puyallup, Wash., has written a thorough commentary and critique of Journey Together Faithfully, Part Two: The Church and Homosexuality, the study guide from the ELCA Sexuality Task Force. You may download his commentary from the WordAlone web site.

More critiques of Journey Together Faithfully and other resources are also available on the Resources page of the WordAlone web site. Scroll down the page to the marriage and family section.
