We also celebrate this week with Lisa Larges. She has been an inquirer or candidate for ministry for twenty-two long years, waiting patiently for her gifts and call to be affirmed while the church fought its battles. She has preached at national conferences including our own, and her extraordinary gifts for ministry are recognized around the country. On Tuesday, January 15th, she was examined by San Francisco Presbytery and found ready to receive a call. The presbytery responded to her stated departure from G-6.0106b and her call to ministry with a civil debate and a positive vote.We have a long way to go as a church to be as just and generous or as bold and missional as the church God needs and desires. The church has not solved its division over sexuality and ordination. But yesterday it took a modest but significant step forward.
