Same Sex Marriage at St. Cuthbert’s?
Dear Friends in Christ, Peace of the Lord be with you. This past Sunday we initiated a conversation regarding whether or not we, the Priest and People of St. Cuthbert’s, Leaside, would seek the Bishop’s permission allowing same-sex marriages to occur here. I ask us to pray for the leading of the Spirit through which we might discern the mind of the parish on this matter.
A suggested prayer:
Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, guide us by your Holy Spirit to consider and discern the mind of our parish regarding same-sex marriage. Teach us in all things to seek first your honour and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Ian, Priest & Pastor.
