Dear Lighthouse Trails:
Some further sad news regarding the Christian church in the U.K. This news is from the BBC today (June 30th): “World’s oldest Methodist church to allow gay marriage.” The article states:
The world’s oldest Methodist building will now offer same-sex marriage after voting unanimously in favour. The New Room is a Chapel first set up in 1739 by John Wesley in the city of Bristol. From the 30th of June 2022, the chapel will be able to officiate weddings for LGBTQ+ couples living in Bristol.
After a vote to allow same-sex marriages within the movement in 2019, the decision was made at the Methodist Conference last year to give local churches the option to conduct marriage ceremonies in specific buildings.
One of the saddest days in the history of the so-called Christian Church in the UK today!
