The Bishop's Letters
Articles from July 2013
“Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart” (1 Corinthians 4:1). As were so many, I was grieved by yesterday’s Supreme Court rulings on marriage. Increasingly, as biblically faithful Christians, we find ourselves unsupported—even sharply opposed—by the nation which has long upheld the Judeo-Christian moral tradition. Rather than try to characterize the rulings—a task better done by those trained in the law—I would urge you to read an article published today by the Witherspoon Institute entitled, “The Supreme Court, You and Me, and the Future of Marriage” by Sherif Girgis, Ryan T. Anderson and Robert P. George.
