In a few short weeks the Supreme Court will be issuing a ruling about whether same-sex marriages are a constitutional right, or if it something that can be determined by each state. In this episode Scott and Todd discuss Pres. Matthew Harrison’s recent pastoral letter, what implications this may have on pastoral care, and how pastors and congregations should start responding to this.
“Public remedy, made through the office of the public official, is not condemned, but is commanded and is God’s work, according to Paul Romans 13)” (Apology XVI 59).
