Quote of the day

From Religion News Service, quote of the day:

“We have fallen short in honoring all people of God and being an instrument for that grace. We have disciplined, censured and expelled when we should have listened, learned and included.”

-- A Rite of Reception from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, used Sept. 18 to welcome three openly lesbian pastors onto the ELCA clergy roster.

The ceremony was sponsored by the Synods of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minn., and was quoted by The Star Tribune in Minneapolis.
