I don't think my church has a web address as of yet.

I'd be willing to help.

Good Day Myron!

I would suggest that you and the pastor at Grace Lutheran Church in Bruce, SD need to read the documentation for the decision on the ELCA WWW page.

As Jesus the Christ said in response to the Pharisees question as to the most important command in God's law (after besting the Sadducees), "'Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.' This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.' These two commands are pegs; everything in God's Law and the Prophets hangs from them." (Matthew 22:34-40 ["The Message" version]) Further compare Paul's "When you love others, you complete what the law has been after all along. The law code — don't sleep with another person's spouse, don't take someone's life, don't take what isn't yours, don't always be wanting what you don't have, and any other 'don't' you can think of — finally adds up to this: Love other people as well as you do yourself. You can't go wrong when you love others. When you add up everything in the law code, the sum total is love." (Romans 13:9-10 ["The Message" version]) and "Use your freedom to serve one another in love; that's how freedom grows. For everything we know about God's Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That's an act of true freedom. If you bite and ravage each other, watch out—in no time at all you will be annihilating each other, and where will your precious freedom be then?" (Galatians 5:14-15 ["The Message" version])

"All God's people got a place in the choir. Some sing low. Some sing higher. Some sing out loud on a telephone wire. And some just clap their hands, or paws, or anything they got now . . . ."

So, how do you (and the pastor at Grace Lutheran Church in Bruce, SD) understand human sexuality within the context of Jesus' invitation to love God and to love your neighbor?

Have a "Great Day"!
