2009 SEPA Synod Assembly

Assembly deals with ELCA sexuality actions

In its first reference and counsel report, the Assembly dealt with two memorials related to the ELCA’s upcoming decisions regarding a social statement on human sexuality, and proposed changes that would allow ordination of gay and lesbian persons in committed, monogamous relationships.

  • The Assembly voted to consider (later today) a resolution in support of the proposed changes.
  • The Assembly defeated a proposal to ask the ELCA to require a 2/3 majority on votes on the proposed changes in ministry standards, rather than the simple majority required by the ELCA Constitution.
