What have we learned?

Form a committee in each church to review this book and send results in. Then go to a higher level of review. These books are made from man - not of God. They are to be kept with the times and may need updating so they work for Today's world. Do not keep people in ignorance. People are meant to learn and progress. Otherwise, what have we learned?

which decision?

Thanks for the article. I can't find anything more on the Judicial Council decision you mentioned. Could you provide a link to an article, or the decision itself, that says the Discipline cannot be used to undermine itself?

Concentric Set

I love your description of the UMC as a "concentric set of conferences." I would love to see a diagram, graphic or artistic interpretation of that idea. It might make it easier to imagine a better way to be going forward

Notable Quotes


Bishop Laurie Haller delivers the Episcopal Address at the 2017 session of the Iowa Annual Conference.“Are you modeling the love of Christ to everyone who walks through the doors of your churches? What are you doing outside your buildings for the people most in need in your communities, the state of Iowa, and this world? Are all of your many activities making a difference? Where’s your runway?”

– Bishop Laurie Haller in her first episcopal address to the Iowa Annual Conference.
