A Way Forward Resource
As United Methodists look to the future, many of us have concerns about the work of the special General Conference to be held in early 2019. The Commission on a Way Forward has made periodic reports of their work but the General Conference may consider the Commission’s work and make a completely different action than those proposed by the Commission. 

In the meantime, United Methodists should take this time to have meaningful conversations around the subject of human sexuality in preparation for the time ahead. There are many resources available to guide these conversations. 

I share one such resource (through the link below) that can provide a guide to having such conversations in local churches with thanks to Reverends Mark Conforti and Stacy Lundy of First UMC, Salisbury for making this resource available for distribution. 

May you be guided toward healthy and respectful dialogue as all United Methodists seek the faithful way forward.

Thank you,
Mark Andrews
