No more meetings!

I do get global church. I don't think they should have been traveling in the first place. The cost was one of my first objections.

We took a hurricane last year and 10 days with no power, an natural disaster. Our people are broke. Those who do have a job work for the National Park Service which own the island. If there's a shutdown, they're the first to close. We are still raising money and paying apportionment.

It looks awful for handpicked elites to jet off to Germany (all in the name of being fair and global) while people like my congregation (with it's share of gay members) struggles financially, while hurricanes destroy islands, while churches try to be churches.

We need to deal with the issue. No more meetings.

Meeting

They are charged with coming up with a proposal to resolve a very serious problem within The UMC. Can't do that without meetings. If it was up to me I would lock them in a room until they came out with their proposal.

Notable Quotes   


     "Fundamentalist Christians have moved the theological needle so far to the right that the Gospel is said by them to be a 'progressive agenda.' It's not – it's the Gospel. We must keep preaching Jesus' message of the Kingdom of God (over against the kingdoms of this world) rooted in love (not legalism) and aimed toward reconciliation (not division). The Pharisees alleged Jesus' message was a 'liberal agenda.' It wasn't – it was the Gospel."

– The Rev. Dr. Steve Harper in a Facebook post.
