More Light and CovNet Agree on GA Strategy

More Light Presbyterians and the Covenant Network of Presbyterians are in agreement at this year's PC(USA) General Assembly. I am thrilled about that. Covenant Network has announced its recommendations which include:

  1. Approve the overtures designed to support the 217th GA’s approval of the authoritative interpretation of G-6.0108.
  2. Issue an Authoritative Interpretation making it clear that the “definitive guidance” statements that preceded G-6.0106b, and the subsequent affirmations of them, have no force or effect.
  3. Send to the presbyteries an amendment of G-6.0106b that would remove the provisions aimed at excluding LGBT persons from ordained service.

Now we are getting somewhere. You can read More Light's recommendations here.
