A statement by the Rev. Bart Day, executive director, Office of National Mission
The LCMS hosts a “tweet chat” on marriage June 19, allowing participants to pose questions and share answers and resources. It was a first for the Synod.
For its first-ever “tweet chat,” the LCMS is encouraging congregation members and church workers to join Lutheran leaders in a discussion about God’s intention for marriage.
The statement is the result of ongoing study and discussion between the LCMS, the Anglican Church in North America, Lutheran Church—Canada and the North American Lutheran Church.
As the Supreme Court deliberates two marriage-related cases, the Synod offers these tools to help congregational members, confirmation classes, Bible study groups and others discuss marriage.
