NW Minn. Synod Assembly agenda includes no resolutions regarding sexuality decision, gay clergy

I’m a bit stunned (not to put it too strongly). The Northwestern Minnesota Synod of the ELCA re-cently posted the list of resolutions to be consid-ered at next month’s as-sembly, and none relate directly to the denomina-tion’s controversial sexual-ity decisions last year.

I’ll likely be doing a story related to this and tie in some of the other related news. I’ll post a link here when it comes out.

A little recent history for those not familiar with this ongoing story: at its Churchwide Assembly in August, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Amer-ica adopted a controversial social statement on human sexuality and voted to allow individuals in same-gender relationships to serve in the clergy.
