APC Session believes that formally endorsing MLP’s statement and becoming part of a national community of hope and equality is an explicit expression of a value that is fully consistent with who we are, and not a representation of something “new.” As Don Peebles, Clerk of Session, put it, becoming a More Light congregation is akin to “turning on the porch light,” that APC intentionally welcomes LGBTQ+ folks. Alex McNeil helped us understand that while making such a statement might not seem like a big deal for a group like APC to make, it does matter to members of a historically marginalized group to know that they, specifically, are welcome.
