In a postscript I noted that...
I will NOT be in church 22 May - attending college friend's gay wedding in Washington, DC.Her response?
... just to let you know: my non-presence is NOT due to me being 'raptured'.
Good to know. Otherwise I might feel left behind.Tho' a non-believer, I DO appreciate St. Tim's Lutheran - if only for the opportunity to sing choral music on a weekly basis.
BUT - there are other reasons: Pastor Pat has provided invaluable counseling to both my wife & me, helping us both deal with 8+ years of "living with cancer".
p.s. once-upon-a-time I inquired of a fellow choir member the attitude of St. Tim's toward gays. The answer? (paraphrased)
St. Timothy's is an accepting congregation, with many active gay members... BUT this issue is not at the top of anyone's list.I was satisfied with this response.
