Speaking on behalf of 1500 laity, deacons, elders, and local pastors, Rev. Nate Nims shared a letter to the Bishop that called all to “join a movement of the Spirit that Jesus proclaimed.”  He said, “the doors, hearts, and minds that we have shut for too long must be opened to the full grace of God” and we must no longer do harm to our LGBTQIA sisters and brothers.
