Since Steve Chalke's article last week a number of people have responded to his article. By co-incidence Poynton Baptist Church's Sunday evening gathering last week had previously planned to talk about 'gay marriage'.
Following on from this evening conversation I have produced a short booklet that describes some of the issues. You can download it here
The booklet is not a response to Steve and it is not an academic work of careful argument and nuanced opinion. I've added it to the blog simply because it may be helpful to others in their local church context.
I am of course aware that any public comment in this area is an invitation to criticism. I believe this is an issue Christians and chuches need to grapple with because it is not going to go away. You may not agree with the direction I have taken and want to say so via the comments below. However, ungracious, vitriolic comments will be deleted.
