An Important UMC Decision #umc #lbgtq

As a former member of the United Methodist Church I am watching with care the proceedings at the called General Conference in St. Louis, Missouri regarding issues of sexuality and the denomination. This is not a easy time for the children of Wesley but its a time for decisions to be made for the future of their denomination. I support the inclusion, full participation and full access to sacramental rites of LGBTQ believers as I do in The Episcopal Church.

It is time that bold moves to build bridges, create opportunities and help everyone become a part of the life of the community of saints. There is opposition to inclusion and I realize that but I implore a spirit of openness, love and grace be upon those who will be leading this important conversation.

  1. One of my best friends in Alaska, his dad was a Methodist minister and he’s attended since before birth. He finally decided to leave because he was so uncomfortable. Not with inclusion, with that inclusion being behind the pulpit. Biblical interpretation is not as cut and dried as most conservatives believe.
