Marriage: 

Where do Presbyterians go from here?

Gathering in Detroit in June, the commissioners of the 221’st General Assembly voted to change the Book of Order to state that:

Marriage involves a unique commitment between two people, traditionally a man and a woman, to love and support each other for the rest of their lives.

Defining marriage continues to be an issue with which Presbyterians struggle.

Participate in a multi-perspective discussion of how Presbyterians understand marriage.  A goal of a previous denominational study on marriage was: to offer congregations the opportunity to talk about this difficult issue in an environment where no votes will be taken and no decisions made. Participants could hear others’ perspectives without feeling the need to convince their colleagues of the validity of their own viewpoints.

It is in this spirit that we hope to discuss and listen to perspectives between Presbyterians of good faith, but of different backgrounds.

      9:30 – 10:00    Coffee, donuts and fellowship

     10:00 – 12:00   First discussion session

     12:00 – 1:00      Lunch (provided to participants by St. Andrews)

     1:00 – 3:00        Second discussion session
