"A detailed report to be presented to the church's General Assembly, its top policy-making body, which meets June 13-20 in Charlotte, N.C., cites news reports and population statistics that immigration from Asia, Africa and Latin America is increasing the nation's ethnic diversity and declares that "a predominantly Anglo, suburban and middle class de- n'o'mination like the Presbyterian Church" needs a strategy to account for that. ' The report said, "Any institution with intentions to grow must make provisions to attract and enlist an overall membership that is diverse in nature." Reversing a membership decline has long been a concern among Presbyterians, who, like several other Protestant churches, have suffered a loss of members since the 1970s. Lately, that trend has shown signs of moderating within some denominations. Presbyterians reported that they lost about 22,000 members last year, after losing about 33,000 in each of the two previous years. "The church recognizes it needs to grow," said the Rev. Jovelino Ramos, associate director for racial and ethnic ministries, "and the church recognizes here's an area that could provide a major part of that growth." Currently, blacks, Hispanics, Asians and American Indians account for less than 7 percent of the denomination. African-Americans have been most visible, if only because the General Assembly has twice since 1989 elected black ministers to one-year terms as moderator, one of the denomination's top two offices. Among them is the current moderator, the Rev. Patricia Brown. In 1996, the assembly voted to set a goal of raising Presbyterians' minority membership to 10 percent by 2005 and 20 percent by the decade beginning 2010. In recommending that the denomination help predominantly minority congregations to grow and start other congregations, the report, Ramos said, offers a theological statement that native-born and immigrant minority members are "partners in mission" with the larger church. Because growth will require more ministers, church officials recommended in their report that the denomination's seminaries have faculty members who know minority communities and that recruitment of minority students be increased. They also recommended that the church foster "fellowship" groups among immigrants as a step toward forming congregations. Of the denomination's 11,300 congregations, about 450 are predominantly African-American, 320 are Korean-American and 150 are Hispanic.

But for others, it can be a searing summer... an early fall... a chilling winter. It all depends on the two people who leave the church... and the road they choose for their journey together. For, when love comes to the altar, it is full of hope... and faith... and promise. If love returns to the altar - week after week - it will discover God's unceasing renewal of those sacred vows. But it isn't quite so simple as praying together and staying together. It is a man and woman's unending quest for every spiritual insight that will enable them to understand... to appreciate... to cherish... each other and God!

His successor could even be more controversial. If the 600 delegates in the Newark diocese choose the Rev. Canon Gene Robinson over five other candidates today, they will have elected the first openly gay Episcopal bishop in the nation. "It would obviously be a historic move. I suppose it would be compared with the first election of a woman bishop 10 years ago," said Jim Solheim, a spokesman for the 2.5-million member denomination.
