Religion

Regular ceremonies enable people to open themselves to God more fully. They help people to hear God's offer and challenge ever more deeply, and to allow God to prompt and enable them to respond.

Politics

Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected. Laws in civil society should define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Views

All Christians should study Old and New Testament, which texts were written and gathered together over a long period of time. It is important to find out as much as we can about the original contexts in which texts were produced.
