Beginning January 14th we will discuss inclusiveness issues as related to the LGBTQ community. The source for discussion will be the book Unafraid and Unashamed: Facing the Future of United Methodism, by Wil Cantrell. We also will have some videos of our Bishop Karen Oliveto interviewing the author of this book. Various alternatives for future directions our United Methodist denomination could take will be included in these discussions, as the Commission on a Way Forward meets and directs our denomination. Please consider joining us in January as we explore these issues to gain a better understanding for ourselves individually, as well as for our church. We plan to spend 4 Sundays on this topic. The book is available at Amazon & Cokesbury for $10 on Kindle, or $18.95 for the “real book”. In light of the high price of the book, you may or may not wish to purchase it and read it — perhaps it could be shared with somebody if you do purchase it?
