April 12th, 2014 Assembly Summary

The theme of “neighbors” arose at this meeting – with TAG Talks (Technology, Art, God) touching on neighboring as a non-profit, with undocumented immigrants, and interreligously. A panel discussion on marriage featured Jim Brownson, author of Bible, Gender, Sexuality: Reframing the Church’s Debate on Same-Sex Relationships. Lunch was a time of sharing stories about the work of our churches, and our retiring Synod Executive, Carol McDonald, drove in from Indiana to preach.
