Correspondence, study materials, meeting minutes, and reports document the work of the Special Committee to Study Human Sexuality.
The Meetings and administration series, 1986-1991 consists of administrative files, including internal correspondence, financial records, and the committee's original mandate. Also included are materials related to committee meetings such as arrangement notes, correspondence, preliminary packets, minutes, and copies of statements/presentations delivered by scholars, theologians, and committee members.
The Study Materials series, 1974-1991 consists of the materials that were either prepared by or used by committee members during their study. There are three folders that contain compiled articles on biblical, scientific, and social studies of human sexuality. (Statements and presentations given by the committee members can be found in Series I: Meetings and administration, 1986-1991.)
The Correspondence series, 1989-1991 consists of letters sent to Stated Clerk James E. Andrews regarding the committee. The letters were written by congregations, pastors, and lay people to share their opinion on the committee's work and the church’s stance on homosexuality. The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by the correspondent's last name or the name of the congregation.
The Reports series, 1990-1991 consists of drafts of the Special Committee to Study Human Sexuality’s final report. This includes drafts of the policy statement, framework, and sub-committee reports as well as revisions made by members.
