Church leaders meet with the NAC homosexuality group

resizedRainbow-NAC called for a revision of the New Apostolic Church’s position on homosexuality. This was discussed at a meeting held on 20 December 2013. The meeting’s agenda included current issues surrounding the circumstances of homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual members within the Church. Participants discussed the Church’s position on homosexuality of 2005 and members of Rainbow-NAC once again emphatically requested a revision to both the German as well as the English formulation in particular. The participants agreed that there was a need to take action, and resolved to take further steps. The group also studied various ways in which Rainbow-NAC might be more closely integrated into the organisation and internal processes of the Church.

Rainbow-NAC also has a new official point of contact in the New Apostolic Church. The Project Group (PG) Marriage, Family, and Cohabitation will now be the official liaison between the leadership of the Church and the initiative of homosexual, bisexual, and transsexual New Apostolic Christians. This change is intended to integrate the group more closely into the decision-making processes of the Church. The Committee for Special Affairs (CSA) had served as the group’s official liaison to the Church over the previous ten years.

District Apostle Wilfried Klingler from the PG summarised the developments of the last ten years by stating that Rainbow-NAC has since become a firm constituent of the Church’s work and that a valuable and trusting working relationship has come into being. He went on to express the Church’s resolve to continue promoting and supporting the special position of the group in the future. As with the Committee for Special Affairs, discussions between Rainbow-NAC and the Project Group are to take place once each year. The next meeting is planned for December 2014.
