This is an important ruling and a complicated one. It acknowledges the role of prophets, like Janie, in this church and world, but it also leaves us with much work to do. The Spirit released by this decision can only grow, as it becomes clear that the call one hears from God must always come first. From there, the Spirit, as it has here...will create ways for the rest to happen. Thank you to Janie, her family, attorneys, friends, and all those who have ever been willing to sacrifice and risk themselves for justice. Links for the ruling and to the PCUSA News Service can be found here. Peace.
