Seeking God's Will on Same-Sex Relationships
Seeking God's Will on Same-Sex Relationships: The Experience of Cleveland Friends Meeting
Many Friends Meetings have struggled with the issue of same-sex relationships. Cleveland Meeting tried to discern what God wanted our meeting to do on this issue twenty years ago.We struggled for some eight years before experiencing the miracle of coming into unity in 1994 with what felt to us to be a "third way". Not everyone agreed, and Cleveland Meeting was disowned by Ohio Yearly Meeting (Conservative). Rather than providing a narrative this book presents the multiplicity of documents-minutes from monthly, quarterly, and yearly meetings, reports of committees, and some letters-that record the struggle, in the hopes that readers may draw their own conclusions.
