Recently in Mennonite Church USA, a group of 150 pastors and leaders signed an open letter encouraging the denomination to greater openness toward those who welcome, affirm, and bless LGBTQ people and relationships. They believe that following Jesus calls us to follow a rule of love. This is a value that Columbia Mennonite Fellowship Group also holds, and though we are still a small fellowship without formalized membership or pastoral leadership, we have decided to add our name to the chorus.
View the letter and signers here. We are in very good company in this, our first official action to and with the wider church.
