Dear Folks -
There was an overwhelmingly positive response to affirming the process of Ordinary Life become a part of the Reconciling Ministries Network. The Reconciling Ministries Network is made up of churches, groups - such as Ordinary Life - and individuals who affirm openness and inclusion of all persons. This is especially designed to explicitly include persons who are part of the LBGT community.

There is a page of information about this on the Ordinary Life website. For those in the Houston area who physically attend Ordinary Life there will two more opportunities to sign a form indicating your support of this or concerns about it. For those who "attend" Ordinary Life via the internet, the same form will be posted on the Ordinary Life website with the "comments" section turned on. This way you can show your support of this move or ask questions.
