This folder contains material regarding the ordination of gays and lesbians in the United Church as discussed by the 32nd General Council. The folder contains one copy of “Towards a Christian Understanding of Sexual Orientation, Lifestyles, and Ministry” and documents reacting to or commenting on it (including a Declaration of Dissent pertaining to ministers, a list of signatories and two copies of a Declaration of Dissent pertaining to moderators). It also includes documents published by the Community of Concern (including letters and reports written by Bill Fritz), two copies of the pamphlet “Membership, Ministry, and Human Sexuality,” three copies of Sang Chul Lee’s Moderator’s Letter, a sermon transcript and four newspaper articles. The contents of this file were not disturbed when order was imposed—no documents were added or removed.
