From the Columbus Dispatch:

The local conference of the United Methodist Church is warning of a scam in which pastors and churches are contacted by con artists purporting to be from the bishop’s office and asking for money for someone urgently in need.

In a message sent Thursday to churches and other Methodist organizations, the West Ohio Conference says scams targeting clergy are “moving from conference to conference across the country.”

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
