The vote is cast. ELCA has voted to approve the ordination of non-celibate homosexual people.

My eyes fail, looking for your promise;
       I say, “When will you comfort me?”

 Streams of tears flow from my eyes,
       for your law is not obeyed.

My harp is tuned to mourning,
and my flute to the sound of wailing.

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
