I’ve received many questions about the vote at the South Dakota Synod Assembly regarding a resolution that was passed to Reconsider and Remove the Social Statement, “Human Sexuality: Gift & Trust.” Rather than try to summarize everything, I’ll be as thorough as I can with it and walk through everything. I’ll post the resolution, my notes from the live blog, my impressions of the discussion and my thoughts on why it went the way it did.
*I know this is a bit long. As I said above, I see no other way to present this fairly or accurately. All resolutions and historic votes are from the ELCA SD Synod website.

I love road trips. There’s something freeing about packing up a car and driving. Our modern journeys typically have less uncertainty than journeys or treks of the past; the excitement, freedom and adventure can certainly still be present though.
