Campaign to Pass the One Church Plan
The United Methodist Church is the closest it has been to fracture since the Civil War. We have engaged in over forty years of contentious struggle around human sexuality with no resolution. The 2016 General Conference voted for a new path. The Conference voted to table all legislation related to human sexuality and asked the Council of Bishops to come up with a plan. The Bishops agreed and engaged in an unprecedented two year, global discernment process. They formed The Way Forward Commission and received their three proposals. Nearly 2/3 of the Bishops have recommended the One Church Plan for approval to the 2019 Special Session of the General Conference in St. Louis. This carefully discerned resolution is the best path forward for the church.
