미국장로교 (PCUSA) 소속 교회에게 드리는 글
주 안에서 형제 자매된 여러분들께,

안수 기준에 관한 찬반 토의는 지난 30년동안 미국장로교회 교인들이 힘들게 다루어왔던 사항입니다. 우리는 모든 교회와 모든 교인, 집사, 장로, 그리고 말씀과 성례전의 목사들이 함께 목회의 은사들을 나눌 수 있는 장소를 찾으려고 노력해 왔습니다. 물론, 동시에 우리들은 모든 교회, 교인, 집사, 장로, 그리고 목사들의 뜻이 존중되는 것을 추구하였습니다.
A las congregaciones de la Iglesia Presbiteriana (EEUUA)
Estimados hermanos y hermanas en Cristo:
Reciban ustedes abundancia de misericordia, paz y amor. (Judas 1:2).
El debate sobre las normas de ordenación ha sido una lucha en la familia presbiteriana por gran parte de las últimas tres décadas. Hemos tratado de buscar esa posición en la cual cada congregación, cada persona que sea parte de la membresía, cada diácono o diaconiza, anciano o anciana, y ministro o ministra de la Palabra los Sacramentos, puedan compartir sus dones en el ministerio y a la misma vez respetar la integridad de cada congregación, membresía, diácono o diaconiza, anciano o anciana, y ministro o ministra.
A missional hermeneutic will incorporate and then ultimately move beyond broad overviews of biblical mission toward a focused and contextualized exegetical engagement with particular texts, including those that are not usually understood in terms of mission. This approach is rooted in the conviction that God has a mission in the world and that Christians read Scripture as those called and sent to participate in those divine purposes.

The Advocacy Committee for Racial Ethnic Concerns (ACREC) calls the Presbyterian Church (USA) to embody what it has confessed, “that the church as the possession of God must stand where the Lord stands, namely against injustice and with the wronged; that in following Christ the church must witness against all the powerful and privileged who selfishly seek their own interests and thus control and harm others. Therefore, we reject any ideology which would legitimate forms of injustice and any doctrine which is unwilling to resist such an ideology in the name of the gospel.”1
