As many of you know, the United Methodist Church is trying to determine what a future looks like for the denomination as disagreements about homosexuality and Biblical interpretation continue to create divides in our connection. We are offering a Talkback session about this historic decision after worship November 11th to talk about the possibilities coming out of the Called Session of the General Conference (January, 2019), and what this looks like for Christ Church in February and beyond.
To prepare for this conversation, we encourage you to read a few articles so you understand the Plans being discussed. HackingChristianity.net is a website and blog by Rev. Jeremy Smith, a UMC pastor, who encourages dialogue about faith, young clergy issues, technology, internet theory, and more. We encourage you to read his blogs about three of the proposed plans: One Church Plan, Connectional Conferences Plan, and Traditionalist Plan. In the coming months we'll also share additional resources to prepare you for our Talkback Session November 11th.
