Recently you may have seen in the media where a majority of the presbyteries (geographic organizations of Presbyterian Churches) of the Presbyterian Church USA, including our own Foothills Presbytery, have voted to change the Presbyterian Church's Book of Order. Some of you have asked what this means for us here at Westminster. Let me attempt to respond to this with a series of questions and answers:
Westminster has a history of tackling difficult issues. For instance, when racial integration and the role of women in church leadership were controversial topics, Westminster studied, talked, and came to a conclusion of how to proceed, believing that decision was God's will for the church. We will do the same with this issue.
