Town Hall Sessions Scheduled with Bishop on Human Sexuality

The special session of General Conference – scheduled for Feb. 23-26, 2019, in St. Louis – has preoccupied the thoughts, prayers and ministries of many United Methodists. The information shared by all sides in the dialogue over human sexuality can be confusing because of the volume of material and the intricacies of each position.

To help the 220,000 people in our Great Plains Conference churches better understand the issues on all sides and to help maintain our focus on the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. convened the Forward in Unity Process Team. This group of clergy and lay people from across the conference has met several times to discuss ways of ensuring the information related to the special session of General Conference is shared in ways that maintain a collaborative atmosphere and that allow space for the Holy Spirit to work in us and through us all.

To read the full report from the Council of Bishops and watch an introductory video from Bishop Saenz, visit the conference website here.

You’ve read stories and heard the news about The United Methodist Church’s upcoming special session of General Conference to address concerns around human sexuality. Join Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. as he addresses the recent recommendation by the Council of Bishops and leads discussions on this important subject. You’re invited to come listen, learn and, most importantly, share.
