I was wondering if people would be willing to share their stories of ONA processes?

Do you still want stories? I can sorta tell mine, but I didn't really know what was going on at the time. Suffice to say, my church at home is now ONA.

I would love to hear it! I'm up for stories any time :)

Totally forgot you had commented. Sorry about that.

Unfortunately, I was about 10 when my church went ONA, but I have been told that there were a series of slightly-less-than-amicable discussions in church about it. Finally, I think, one of the older members of the church brought up a granddaughter who was "out," and their love for their granddaughter which was the crucial point in discussion.

I'm also pretty sure that many members of the church threatened to leave on both sides.

Now, I think I would have trouble theologically going to a church that wasn't ONA. The one I go to on occasion at college is ONA, too.

Hope that helps?
