NEWS FROM THE DENOMINATION
At the last General Conference of the United Methodist Church, the Commission on a Way Forward was created to explore options for the future of The United Methodist Church on issues concerning human sexuality. That Commission will convene again July 19-21 to continue its work. This will be the fourth meeting of the 32-member Commission, which was appointed by the Council of Bishops to assist the bishops in discerning a way forward. The commission’s ultimate assignment is to present its report to the Council of Bishops for action at the Special Session of General Conference set for February 23-26, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
Please keep the Commission on a Way Forward in your prayers on July 19-21.
