As you may be aware, the 2016 General Conference of The United Methodist Church established a "Commission on a Way Forward" to help define the agenda for a special General Conference to be held in 2019. This special General Conference will focus on how the church organizes itself in relation to differing and deeply held convictions regarding church doctrine on human sexuality and related matters.
The following video provides a slide presentation with "bullet points" describing the commission's progress to date. It ends with a short video of prominent UMC author and Pastor Ed Berlin describing how Jesus' parable of the vine in John 15 may reflect how we can move forward as a global church that incorporates a wide array of cultural outlooks under a common umbrella of powerful and transformational missions, shaped by Wesleyan theology.
