The Committee to Give Direction about and for Pastoral Care for Homosexual Members encouraged Christian Reformed churches to repent for failing to minister to gay and lesbian members. The committee noted that the church's 1973 guidelines, while calling for members to become heterosexual or remain celibate, proclaim that the church will be patient and loving. "The church at large has not attempted to create these kinds of conditions on anything like a broad scale," says the committee's report. "For this reason alone, it would be fitting for the CRC to seek God's forgiveness."
