I’ve been walking with my friend, Adam Walker-Cleaveland, through his tumultuous process of ordination over the past few months. And I’ve often urged him to abandon what I consider to be a broken and probably sinful system.
Well, now he has gone public with the fact that his ordination to the PC(USA) denomination was scuttled by his home church and his presbytery because he had the temerity to invite his lifelong best friend, a gay man (gasp!), to preach at the ordination service.
Today, Adam stands before some committee or other, defending his call to ministry.
