Door number 4

I’m thinking that door number 4 seems the most faithful of the options. You stated well the difficulties of the three plans offered by the Commission on a Way Forward. Each one contains a potential fatal flaw. Methodism, United or any other way, is best as a movement of sharing the grace of God. That is difficult to accomplish when the institution is fighting for its very existence.
Thank you, Christy, for your thoughtful insights.
