GC Shorts – Rev. David Meredith announces intention to be openly gay episcopal candidate

As the second week of General Conference begins, the Love Your Neighbor Coalition sponsors a march around the Convention Center and lifts up what would be the first openly gay episcopal candidate in UM history.

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)

You may want to reconsider your headline…https://www.rmnetwork.org/newrmn/pastor-is-churc/. History was already made in the west.

Thanks for the info. We were basing on what was being shared at the event, but you are correct.
