At the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal Church, a task force on the study of marriage was created to report back to the next convention on the history and theology of marriage. The task force's report was released in February. Today, the Fully Alive Project has responded to that report with an article in the Anglican Theological Review that lays out a different picture of what marriage is and what it is for. We hope this will be informative not only to the upcoming General Convention but to the whole Church Catholic as we seek together to hear and understand God's calling for us in marriage.
The members of Fully Alive assembled in September of 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee. After a thorough conversation, the group decided to embark upon an ambitious set of goals including the writing of several essays on marriage, personhood, and pluralism. They also plan to develop resources for conversation at the next General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2015.
