The Discipline is NOT invincible. It is a series of outmoded house rules demonstrating how a UMC is to be structured, but if it does not suit your congregation, then just work around it. Create your own structure and then if it really works well, start pushing for change in the larger church. Or just go on, doing what you do well. If your people are happy and your church is thriving, who is going to shoot you down? Jealous people may try, but they will not, in the end, succeed.
