Not For United Methodist Christians Only, part 5

February 23, 2019

Rick Pierson speaks for many of us, maybe most of us, when he wrote this yesterday about our United Methodist General Conference 2019 (meeting today through Tuesday, February 26, in St. Louis). I thank him for graciously giving me permission to share this with you here today  —

I’ve gone to a Methodist church since I was 4 or 5, I feel like I’m sitting in the basement hearing a tornado ripping stuff apart outside and that we are just anxious to see how bad the damage is.

Regardless of how this vote goes there will be people leave the church, there will be people very unhappy and afterwards the church will rebuild. It’s not the first major social issue the church in the US had weathered and probably won’t be the last.

To me it’s just a matter of waiting to see what kind of damage we have to deal with when the storm passes.

—- How’s that go again, the disciples were in a boat with Christ Jesus and a storm came up and scared them? Yeah. I admit to being scared right now. Maybe you are, too.
