The seventh day is not Sabbath

I'm blogging live from the floor. Probably a violation of protocol. Nevertheless...

Well, we’re in the midst of it – the statement has been presented, particular language highlighted, and we will accept the statement for what it is. There is something in it for everybody, or to put it another way, you can find whatever you want.

The remarkable thing is that both liberal and conservative voices have spoken in favour of the statement, which may be some indication of grace. I don’t know what the future of the blessing and sexuality debate (and action) will be, but I’m certain the editorial writers will find a whole lot to say.

For me, it is a snapshot of a moment in time, and as one speaker said, “I’m gonna have a whole lot of ‘splainin’ to do."
