I find Bishop Carter's comment interesting

Unity was still possible post GC2019 if he was willing to do what he vowed he would do: follow the will of General Conference. When leadership is no longer willing to work within the parameters of how the church is designed to function then there is no more hope for unity because there is no longer anyway to function.The one thing that was left to unify us--General Conference and the BOD--have both been rendered useless by denominational leadership. And now they are going to make one more effort to bend General Conference to their will--something that has not happened since 1972.

More meetings will not change beliefs.

It is ludicrous to think more meetings and gatherings will change anything. We are at an impasse and too divided. Stop wasting time and money on this. We are done, and there is no way we can agree ever. The only people who wish to stay together have financial gains to be made. Bishops that take no stand, are indeed taking a stand for the anything goes. The longer this goes, the less effective the Methodist church becomes for being a witness. Follow the money trail from the beginning of the reconciliation movement and you will find the financial benefits than many, including leaders, have gotten. There is an agenda and this was just the first step.
