We hosted a series of loving, holy conversations regarding the results of our recent survey about the vote at the General Conference 2019. These sessions had impartial facilitators whose led structured conversations and ensured everyone’s voice was heard. The focuses of the sessions were to reflect on the results of our recent survey and identify values that we hold in common that can be incorporated into the draft response to the recent General Conference decision. This was not a time to argue a viewpoint or worry that others will try to change your mind, but just an honest sharing as we move forward together during this time of change for the UMC.
