The PCUSA, the largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States, voted to allow their clergy to perform same-sex marriages. This is significant!
In 1986 I was ordained into the ministry in the Presbyterian Church in Canada. So I have a personal interested in this story.
I knew when I drew this cartoon that it would make only make sense to some. This is a drawing I did, taken from a section of the Reformation Wall in Geneva, Switzerland. These are four major figures in the history of the Reformation: William Farel, John Calvin, Theodore Beza, and John Knox. Some people are probably saying they are rolling in their graves right now.
Things develop. Is this development an separation from its roots? Or is it an unfolding from its roots? I think it is the latter.
