Mennonite Leaders Concerned about Recent Same-Sex Issues

It is encouraging to see that some Mennonite leaders still abide to God’s Word and are concerned about recent same-sex decisions within their denomination:

Board hears conference leaders’ concerns
Mountain States action, EMU policy review are issues

Leaders of several Mennonite Church USA conferences have expressed concern to the denomination’s Executive Board about issues related to homosexuality.

Franconia Mennonite Conference posted a letter from leaders of five of the conferences on its website Feb. 27.

The letter, dated Feb. 12, was intended as counsel for the board at its February meeting in light of two recent actions:

– Eastern Mennonite University’s review of its employment policy that prohibits hiring people in same-sex relationships; and
– Mountain States Mennonite Conference’s licensing of a pastor in a committed same-sex relationship.

The letter describes the two events “as catastrophic for our constituencies.”
