Rejecting Nashville Statement

Press Release: September 1, 2017
“Spahr Reconciliation Project Affirms Inclusive Loving Community;
Rejects Nashville Statement.”
 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA: — The Jane Adams Spahr Reconciliation Project affirms the beautiful sacred diversity of all God’s creation, proclaiming and celebrating that we are all children of God, wholly loved and cherished by our Creator.
 
As a council of spiritual leaders whose stated goal is the creation of healthy, thriving authentic communities of faith, we reject the Nashville Statement issued by the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood on August 30, 2017. Further, we reject any other statements or “manifestos” that teach anything other than full welcoming and inclusion of our Queer family in all faith communities and societies, both locally and internationally.
 
The Jane Adams Spahr Reconciliation Project continues its work in opening the hearts and minds of faith communities toward our LGBTQ Community, welcoming fully those who have been silenced or excluded as members and leaders. We are steadfast in this ministry and outreach; we stand without compromise or apology; and we do not cower before erroneous and hurtful statements or practices meant to marginalize our God-given human family.
