Inevitably, the media have highlighted what is seen as the negative outcome rather than the many positive things which the Guidance has to say. ...a pastoral response of prayers is encouraged, where appropriate, to gay couples who may enquire about the possibility of some form of service. This would not be any fomal rite or liturgy but, as paragraph 22 of the Appendix states, a ‘more informal kind of prayer, at the request of the couple, might be appropriate in the light of circumstances’. My own view is that this might be best done in the couple’s home.
When in a hole, STOP DIGGING.
