Shirley Armstrong, Psychological Counselor and Peer
Education Advisor at Gettysburg College describes the goals of The Reconciling
in Christ (RIC) Program is for congregations, synods, colleges, seminaries, and
other Lutheran organizations. RIC recognizes Lutheran communities that publicly
welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender believers. She discusses the need for churches to make a
statement on the subject, but stresses that the main objective is to get people
talking with each other, not simply taking votes.
