On Monday, at the General Convention of The Episcopal Church, the House of Bishops approved a resolution to create a liturgy for same-sex unions.
In the proposed liturgy, each person would make a vow, exchange rings and be declared "bound to one another in a holy covenant, as long as they both shall live." According to the Episcopal News Service, the resolution proposes the liturgy be approved for provisional use starting the first week of Advent (Dec. 2).
Today the resolution moves to the House of Deputies, which is made up of both clergy and lay people. A vote is expected this afternoon.
Spokane church leaders are there and will be commenting once a decision is made. Check SpokaneFAVS later today for details.
