Greater New Jersey Open Letter to Bishop John Schol and the Way Forward Team
Korean Translation available here:
Spanish Translation available here:

"As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ." Galatians 3:27

We are clergy and laity in GNJUMC. Among us are those who identify as LGBTQIA+, as well as allies and advocates, each of us baptized into Christ, called forth from the waters into Christ’s ministry in the world. We are outraged by the deepening spiritual, emotional and physical trauma inflicted upon LGBTQIA+ persons by the actions of the United Methodist Church, both historic and current, that refute that claim. We lament the harm that has been done and we dissent from the decisions made by the General Conference. Silence is complicity and we will no longer remain silent.

The actions we deplore and hereby refuse to abide by include:

-The expansion of the exclusionary language found in our Book of Discipline for the last 47 years.
-The creation of policies that have prohibited LGBTQIA+ persons to be fully engaged in all areas of ministry.
-The prohibition of funds to support LGBTQIA+ ministries.
-The decisions of the 2019 Special General Conference in support of the Traditional Plan which increased restrictions on the commissioning and ordination of LGBTQIA+ clergy and strengthened punitive measures against our clergy who perform same-gender weddings.
-The vitriol of the 2019 Special General Conference. That is not who we as a church are called to be.

Acting on our Wesleyan values of personal piety and social holiness, we commit ourselves to the ongoing resistance of theological positions which exclude and deny access to the means of grace of ordination and marriage to LGBTQIA+ persons.

We believe that God calls us to live into the fullness of who God created us to be which includes our sexual orientation and gender identity. We affirm and celebrate the ministries of LGBTQIA+ persons, which are made richer by their unique experiences and identities.

We implore our District Committees on Ordained Ministry and Board of Ordained Ministry to recognize and affirm the gifts and graces of all persons. We call on Bishop John Schol to consecrate, commission, ordain and appoint all qualified and elected candidates for ministry without regard to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

We stand with clergy and congregations who follow their conscience and provide pastoral care and leadership to all people and do not discriminate. This includes affirming clergy who celebrate covenant commitments and perform marriages per their conscience and their calling.

We recognize that the United Methodist Church demonstrates great diversity in matters of biblical interpretation. We hold to a critical-historical interpretation of scripture, and we reject biblical literalism and proof-texting, especially as these methods of interpretation are often unduly harmful to marginalized communities.

We reject the exclusionary language in the Book of Discipline and the recently adopted Traditional Plan as it is incredibly harmful to LGBTQIA+ persons, goes against the Wesleyan General Rule of "Do No Harm," and is patently antithetical to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We therefore commit ourselves to sacred resistance and faithful activism to uphold the dignity of all of God's beloved children and further the rights of United Methodists throughout the connection.

Further, we call upon the Bishop and the Greater New Jersey Way Forward Team to:
-Resist complicity in systemic injustice,
-Commit themselves to a process that proclaims the sacred worth of all,
-Lead towards an outcome that actualizes the full participation of LGBTQIA+ persons in the life of the United Methodist Church.
