It takes two to create schism

Progressives with their disobedience and their caustic intolerance of traditionalists have helped to create this mess. And one other thing you leave out: Even if the UMC somehow remains together, how will that solve the 50 years and counting of numerical decline that has already been documented to have the capability to make the denomination unsustainable over the next several decades. So what exactly will be accomplished by keeping the UMC together? After everything that has gone down just exactly how do we all join hands and sing Kumbayah? And just for the record, my do or die issue with progressives is not what they believe about sexuality; it is their high minded intolerant way they live out their beliefs. I don't want to spend the rest of my life being angry with people who simply disagree with me--which is exactly how many of them live their lives.

It's not that hard.

"After everything that has gone down just exactly how do we all join hands and sing Kumbayah?"

Decide to let it go, hand it over to Jesus - then join hands and sing Kumbayah.

How you react is a choice.

So what is our alternative?

Leadership live within the parameters General Conference establishes? That, after all, is what kept the United Methodist Church together. In other words how do we function when it has been made abundantly clear that we no longer have to be consistently bound by what GC decides?
