I guess it is time for me to re-surface from my mini-blogging break and chime in on something:
On March 13 the ELCA Sexuality Task Force released a draft copy of the social statement on sexuality. I have yet to read it and I am NOT going to read it until after Easter.
My question is…WHY NOW? Why release such a statement right before Easter. Now is a time to focus on the most holy week of the year and the resurrection of our Lord. Instead…many people are thinking about a statement on sexuality. I don’t know about you, but this just goes to show how the ELCA’s priorities are a little messed up. I don’t think waiting a couple more weeks would have hurt anything. Don’t get me wrong…this sexuality thing is something important to discuss…but NOT NOW.
As far as I am concerned this is bad timing. But I could be wrong. Maybe I am just ignorant here; if so, someone please enlighten me.
In the mean time, I hope and pray you put down your copy of the sexuality social statement and focus on proclaiming the Good News of Jesus dying and rising FOR YOU and FOR ME. After all…this is why we are here.
Take care and God bless!
