As Christians, congregations and denominations wrestle with the matter of same-sex marriage it is very important to keep a biblical understanding of church unity in mind. In the context of members of the Reformed Church in America dealing with this issue, the Rev. Dr. A. Rand Peabody has written a paper in which he makes an appeal for members of the RCA to remain in unity.
In conjunction with that paper and the response to it, please submit your thoughts on the pros and cons, what you agree with and what you disagree with. These comments will contribute to the further development of the material on those webpages. (For cross-reference, that paper can be found here.) The question in front of us at this time is, with respect to same-sex marriage, is Christian unity of paramount importance or is unity somehow dependent on whether or not same-sex marriage is morally good?
Thank you very much for your consideration of and contribution to this discussion!
