Tomorrow morning: ALL are welcome
Tomorrow morning at 9:15, I will be speaking at St. Matthew's Episcopal church in St. Paul about the Minnesota Marriage amendment. It sounds like a wonderful church, and I am really looking forward to it. You can get the full story here.
I really have come to love the spirit of dialogue I have found among Episcopalians in Minnesota. Certainly, there is not agreement on important issues like this, but there is a very real and heartfelt commitment to discussing it with honesty and compassion.
Here is the short description:
As disciples of Christ, how do we engage in fruitful and respectful conversations about contentious issues of our day? University of St. Thomas law professor Mark Osler will join us during the Faith Forum this Sunday, April 1, to discuss the proposed Minnesota Marriage Amendment and help us explore ways to engage in difficult conversations around questions at the intersection of faith and politics. His presentation, followed by a discussion, will take place in the parish library from 9:15 to 10:15 am.
