14f Vote Tally: 121 yes, 47 no, 1 Tie

Since the historic vote by the General Assembly in June 2014 to recommend that the PC(USA) affirm that marriage is a “unique commitment between two people,” More Light has been hard at work equipping people across the country to have sacred conversations about the importance of marriage within the church.

More Light Presbyterians is committed to the ratification of Amendment 14F that seeks to affirm marriage for all within the Presbyterian Church, USA. This page is dedicated to keep you up to date with the Presbyteries as they vote. While we are working together with other Presbyterian Church USA organizations to fight racism, sexism, classism, and other forms of oppression, we also work together with organizations to help change the culture of the Presbyterian Church USA to that of an open and inclusive denomination that affirms the commitment of any two loving and committed people in marriage.

During this time of voting, please consider supporting your local presbytery in prayer, calling and inviting people to be involved in the discernment process, having conversations with your local church on the importance of this ratification campaign, and finally, supporting our local MLP pastors who are seeking to bring more light to our churches through word and sacrament. For additional resources to aid in study and reflection on Amendment 14F, please download MLP’s marriage guide here: http://marriageguide.mlp.org
