To all the LGBTQ United Methodists going to church this morning after the events in St. Louis know you have my prayers and support today and beyond. Fight the power!
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.
A group of four lads sang about this once. Very wise.
