Kolisha,

Well, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Our congregation, as well as others in the ELCA-Evangelical Lutheran Church in America--have been asked to study the issues of homosexuality vis a vis the issues of ordination and the bless-ings of same sex unions.
Most of the folks who are involved with the study in our congregation have family members who are gay and/or lesbian.
This article will serve us Lutherans a reminder from our learned Jewish brothers and sisters that>

AND - thank YOU!!!! You have made my day!

I seem to recall that The Reform Movement actually has an official "Department" called "Gay & Transgendered Something-or-other..." I know that a woman Rabbi was just appointed to the post, but I just don't remember what it is called. The whole focus is toward assuring a warm welcome to EVERYONE in our community while also making sure that individual needs are met, if not surpassed.

Please let me know if you would like more information - it might be of help to you in your own struggles.
