A Way Forward for St. Paul's
Getting ready for what the United Methodist Church decides about human sexuality
Saturday, May 19, 12:00 noon – 4:00 p.m., Heavener Hall
All adults and youth are invited to a workshop on Saturday, May 19, 12:00-4:00 PM in Heavener Hall, where we’ll have lunch together and talk, learn, and pray as we explore how our congregation might address the United Methodist Church’s forthcoming decisions (not yet known) regarding policies on sexual orientation and homosexuality. We will briefly review what the United Methodist Church is doing, then in small groups we will explore questions that are close to home. We may look at what issues members of our church might agree or disagree about, how decisions are made at St. Paul’s, and what St. Paul’s individuals and groups hold as bedrock beliefs about God, the church, Biblical authority, and inclusivity. Although some individuals may want to express personal opinions about these questions, our emphasis will be on thinking and talking about the life of our congregation. One end goal is a clear-eyed view of what beliefs unite all of us at St. Paul’s, what might separate our members on matters of sexuality, and how we might consider the results of the greater UMC’s 2019 Special Session called to address sexuality and church policy.
