Are we called into the church to find spiritual sustenance for our own personal journeys, and to care for one another and make our church a safe and inclusive space for all who come here?  Yes.  That’s why our worship life, our caring ministry, our youth ministry, our sacred circles and other aspects of our church’s life are so important.  And that’s why there seems to be broad agreement on amending our ONA statement to make the marriage rite of the church available to all couples in the church, regardless of their gender.
