Weekly Witness For 29 April 2009

Shaping A Circle Ever Wider At Provincial Synods

John Clinton Bradley, Integrity's Acting Executive Director, has just returned from a 4-day road trip to talk to discuss LGBT issues with deputies attending provincial synods. On Saturday, April 25th, he spoke at the Province I Synod gathered in Westborough, MA. On Sunday, April 16th, he spoke at the Province III Synod gathered in Martinsburg, WV.

Neither presentation was an official part of the synod agenda, but organizers at both locations were kind enough to provide venues for hour-long presentations during free time slots.

The sessions--open to all synod attendees--were well attended. In Province I, a majority of synod attendees heard the presentation because it was held in the same room where breakfast was served. In Province III, 38 people attended.

Similar presentations will be given in early May at the synods of provinces II, V, and VII. For more information, contact Jan Adams at
