On February 17th, I offered a follow-up gathering to further discuss Human Sexuality and The United Methodist Church. We reviewed what I shared in
October regarding A Way Forward.
Slides from that first gathering are still available here
. The primary focus for this second gathering was to take a look at what Holy Scriptures say about homosexual practice and to talk a bit about our way forward based on what comes from the Special Session of General Conference. Annotated slides from this gathering are available here.
As your spiritual leader and the elder responsible for the ordering of God's church in Moultonborough, I implore you to study the slides from this gathering, to be in prayer with the heart and mind of Christ, and to stay in conversation and unity as the body of Christ. I see the potential for great growth in the body, as we show the world how we can be led by the Spirit and love as Jesus loved.
I will offer another follow-up gathering after a post-General Conference session of local UMC clergy on March 16th in Lebanon, NH.
Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Over the past few weeks we have learned about discipleship and how each of us is called to “Offer Them Christ”. As we grow as disciples, we offer our time, our talents, our prayers, our witness, and our gifts to God. When the church receives pledges of future financial gifts, it allows us to determine the extent to which we can continue, and hopefully expand, the ministries and missions of the church. Please prayerfully consider making a commitment to the blessing of growing as a disciple of Christ, and to the financial support of God’s mission for the church.
