“The United Methodist Church could finally be on the cusp of legislative change. Thanks to decades of advocacy by LGBTQ persons and allies, we find ourselves in an unprecedented position.
“The called General Conference in 2019 and the General Conference in 2020 present the opportunity for significant policy and structural shifts regarding justice and inclusion for LGBTQ persons. As the Commission on a Way Forward meets, the church is finally beginning to recognize that our future together must be inclusive and we look forward to seeing policies and structures reflecting that. However, Reconciling United Methodists already know that the real way forward is found in those enacting justice and love today – we are the way forward.” – From the Reconciling Ministries Network website
Here we will try to keep up with what is happening with the Commission and its proposals leading up to the special General Conference to be held in February 2019.
