Description de l’éditeur

Wednesday, August 19,2009, was eventful for the ELCA, the day that delegates at the churchwide assembly in Minneapolis engaged in dialogue, amended, and voted two-thirds approval (precisely 66.67 percent) of the Social Statement on "Human Sexuality: Gift and Trust." (1) For several hours, more than a thousand voting delegates gave reasons for and against, their eyes occasionally overflowing into tears while quoting the Bible. My colleague at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Herb Anderson, is now saying that he will emphasize "empathy" for each other within the church while teaching his pastoral care courses. After listening for days to all those Bible quotations, I came home and changed my course syllabi to include significant bibliography on Lutheran interpretation of the Bible. (2) Jesus' and Peter's sermons
