Love is the Way

Loving families do not allow family members to purposefully hurt each other. Why have we allowed the Wesley Covenant types to stay, given how they choose to repeatedly and viciously attack innocent others?

Jesus did not preach hate. The UMC is not about hate. If you feel the need to hate others, please go on your way and leave the rest of us in peace. Take your churches and your money; we don't want any part of whatever it is you think you have.

Notable Quotes   


     "Both the physical and spiritual well-being of our communities here and in the future really depend on how well we are connected to one another. Our isolation, our disconnection from one another only makes us that much more vulnerable to the forces of evil."

– Rami Nashashibi, a Muslim community organizer on the south side of Chicago, quoted by National Public Radio. 



     "We need to be gentle with ourselves and give ourselves permission to grieve continued injustice and denominational harm. Lent is maybe the best time of the liturgical year to pause and sit with whatever we are feeling or not feeling right now, especially before we make big decisions. It brings to mind what the disciples might have gone through in those days between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, when maybe they could affirm there would be more to the story but did not yet know what new life was going to come forth."

– T. C. Morrow in a sermon, "Stay the Course," given Sunday, March 17 at Foundry UMC, Washington, D.C. Republished with permission from her Facebook page.
