It's time!

Dear Cynthia,  
The call for justice in The United Methodist Church for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer people is louder than ever. Thanks to your support of our "It's Time" campaign over the last several months, it’s clear that United Methodists are ready and eager for change.
Whatever the legislative outcome at General Conference, we should all take pride in our collective work. Your letters to delegates, story sharing, acts of Biblical Obedience, and screenings of An Act of Love have already made a big, big difference.
But don’t stop now -- your on-going participation is needed throughout General Conference whether you'll be on the ground in Portland, or engaged from home.
Please keep one another, all the delegates, and the church at large in your prayers.
