kudos to jamie arpin-ricci...

...for his courageous post and convictions on homosexuality.

I mentioned in comments that I particularly appreciated jamie's word about the need for grace in this area and his conviction that homosexual behavior is inconsistent with Christian conviction. I realize that these comments may seem counter-cultural to the ec ethos for some, but it has been my concern that some in the ec have been moving in directions on this issue that are spiritually dangerous. We must let the Scriptures be our "norming norm" in this area, yet, it is not enough to simply declare that it is sin.
