Our information list continues to grow. Welcome to our new members.
CORNET, the United Methodist Covenant Relationships Network, will be
holding its second annual Valentine's celebration of all couples,
regardless of gender, in February 1999. Watch
for more information.
A gallery of Valentine's web clip art will soon open. It, like the
celebration, will be inclusive of all couples, regardless of gender.
Here is information about a resource book we are making available.
It will be "off press" very soon.
Valentine's Resource Book, 1999
VALENTINE BOOK, 60 pages, bound. $10.00, including postage and handling.
Published by Affirmation: United Methodists for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual
and Transgender Concerns; edited by Alice G. Knotts.
The Valentine Book is a 60 page manual with helps for every person who
wants to plan a 1999 Valentine service. There are sample services with
incredibly beautiful liturgies. There's a model press release to help
you let the public know about what you are doing. Little e-mail notes
tell of the joy of such occasions, and remind people about the
importance of details like the toppers on cakes for a reception.
Clergy and laity who are sitting on the fence about the whole prospect
of ecclesiastical disobedience will find Chip Aldridge's sermon to be
thought-provoking. People asking questions about the meaning of joining
together can read a paper that explores the relation of this action to
A few short documents in the Valentine Book come from the CORNET web
site. Longer documents are published here for the first time.
