organizations position on divorced ministersgreenspun.com : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread
I am researching the issue of divorced ministers of the gospel for a book on the subject. I would like to include your denominational views on the subject. Does the A.M.E have an official statement concerning this? The book will highlight this issue from the perspective of the divorced minister himself. Therefore, I would also be interested in hearing from any minister who has experienced divorce in order to learn how this has affected his/her ministry. Thank you.
