ACSA Synod goes into Conference to begin debate on human sexuality



 


The Anglican Church of Southern Africa's Provincial Synod is today
beginning discussion on a resolution on pastoral care to people of LGBTI
orientation.


 


Proceedings began with Synod going into Conference, with a mediated
panel discussion on the issue. Snippets from the debate will be found on the
ACSA Twitter feed:

The panel comprised Paul Germond, the facilitator, Dr Miranda Pillay, a
theologian from the University of the Western Cape, the Rev Londiwe Zulu, a
Methodist minister who spoke from a lesbian's perspective, and Bishop Martin
Breytenbach of the Diocese of St Mark the Evangelist, who believes that it is
too early to take a decision on approving same-sex unions.


 


The Synod then broke into seven-person groups to carry the discussion
further.
