Another Bonus Blog, and Another Prayer Request

May 17, 2016

J. S. Harper wrote this about the General Conference of The United Methodist Church currently meeting in Portland through this Friday. As much as it pains me, I just gotta share it with you. As always here, highlights are mine and my Commentary follows —

I have waited to write a blog post at the mid-point of General Conference until more was known about what came out of the first week.  I find myself deeply saddened, with words in short supply.

For the past several years, I have wondered what General Conference would do with respect to our three institutional identifiers: United, Methodist, and Church.  Each of these has been under scrutiny in one way or another in the years leading up to GC 2016.

But now, with recommendations forthcoming which are devoid of even the milk of human kindness, I am now wondering what General Conference will do with the word ‘Christian.’ 

Lord, have mercy!  Christ, have mercy

— Quick reminder: Like I’ve been know to tell people, “God is still in business.”

But I guess the question today is, “Are we still in business with God?”

Repeating my prayer request from yesterday in this space for everyone involved in our General Conference.
