Because of the many vacation absences during July, the July 20 "Wisdom Circle" session has been cancelled. Instead, the church-wide discussion for Sunday, July 31 will begin at 9 a.m. to allow 90 minutes for sharing.
Once again, the focus of these discussions is "Where Do We Go from Here?" in light of the actions of the 2016 General Conference to uphold current anti-LGBTQI stances in the Book of Discipline, our collection of United Methodist doctrine and policy. We're exploring our perceptions on how can we minister to and with the LGBTQI community when our official church policy holds "homosexual behavior is incompatible with Christian teaching."
