Marriage and covenant

Sunday, July 18, 2010

A sermon by Rev. Chandler Stokes on Ruth 1:1–18. In this sermon, we focus on marriage. In 2008, our Session approved the ordination task force report called ‘A Visible Sign of the New Humanity.’ Among the report’s significant graces is that it makes clear that we do not expect everyone to make one conclusion in their understanding sexual orientation. If you haven’t read the report before, I commend it to you. Our sexuality is a gift, and it is not given in the same way to everyone. Yet, that is not the focus of today’s sermon; instead, the question today is “What relationships should the church bless?”
