2014 Easter Writing Project Announced: Why Should the Church Care About Marriage?

GLAD Alliance is seeking contributors for the 3rd Annual Easter Writing Project asking the question of the day: Why should the church care about marriage?  

As the climate of our country changes with 15 states and the District of Columbia now legalizing same-sex marriage, it calls for the question – what does the church have to do with it?  In many places, it is the courts who seem to have the final say.  Should the church be in this conversation as well?  What should it say?  Where should the church say it?

We are looking for voices in the denomination who share in the work of justice to make the walls of the church inclusive of all people.  Are you interested in contributing your voice?  We hope so!  We want voices from all people: gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, white, African-American, Hispanic, Asian, single, married, young, old, lay, clergy, elders, people-taking-a-break-from-church. You name it – you are included – YOU!
