The following is a reflection from Kathleen Moore, Episcopal Church in Vermont communications minister and St. James’, Arlington parishioner:
I was so privileged to have spent last week working with and learning from amazing, inspiring new friends in Ghana.I joined African Anglicans, U.S. Episcopalians and ecumenical participants at a consultation on scripture and sexuality. The group called on churches “to make either public commitment or private arrangement to serve as places of sanctuary for those who live under the threat of violence for working on behalf of the gospel. We understand this group to include LGBTI people, women and men living with HIV, ethnic, racial and religious minorities on both continents and those who are potential victims of gender violence.” Read the full Elmina Consultation statement.
