“HOMOSEXUALITY”

Recent ferment in the Mennonite Church USA triggered four blog posts [in five parts]: “Will Mennonite Church USA Survive? Reflections on Three Decades of Struggle” (part 1—February 28, 2014); “Will MC USA Survive?” (part 2); “‘Othering’ and Mennonite Sexuality Struggles” (March 9, 2014); “How Mennonites Church USA Might Survive: A Fantasy” (March 23, 2014); and “Is the Survival of Mennonite Church USA Now Less Likely?” (July 1, 2014). In the midst of the above series of reflections, I also addressed conversations at my place of employment: “Why Eastern Mennonite University Should Quit Discriminating” (March 30, 2014).

My recent thinking, expanding a presentation given at First Mennonite Church, Canton, Ohio on March 24, 2013. This develops further some of the ideas from my May 2012 blog posts. The overall series is called: “A Biblical Theology of Welcome: Toward an Embrace of Gay Marriage.” Part one: Hospitality.  Part two: Marriage.  Part three: Biblical teaching.  (posted April 28, May 19, and May 26)

More recently, an update on my thinking about gay marriage: “More thoughts about same-sex marriage and Christianity,” posted July 2, 2013.

Here is a three part posting from May 2012 that provides my perspective: “A basic Christian argument for affirming gay marriage” (Part I—May 20, 2012Part II—May 21, 2012Part III—May 22, 2012).

These are four recent blog posts: “Homosexuality, hiring practices, and the Mennonite confession of faith” (April 30, 2013),   “Jesus and homosexuality: What did he do?” (April 21, 2012), “Jesus and homosexuality, part 2” (April 27, 2012), and “The Mennonite Confession of Faith and homosexuality” (May 9, 2012).
