Thank you, Paul!

I appreciate the careful work that enabled you to write your article, and then the charitable spirit that surrounds it. I agree with you that it is possible to move forward together and to do so without having to define the future as an unholy compromise (that is, a new way that is viewed negatively by one or more groups). But that hoped-for outcome demands holy conferencing which cannot wait for, or be accomplished during a ten-day period in May 2016. The time is NOW for persons of a willing spirit to engage themselves toward a legitimate end that preserves the unity of the UMC while keeping our declared commitment to Scripture, Tradition, and the Wesleyan heritage in place. I can easily lose hope about this, and then I read again and cling to Jeremiah 32:27.

Agreed! If only...

The forces of repression within the UMC would listen

"The forces of repression" ...

If that arrogant, judgmental attitude is common, there is little hope for holy conferencing OR for maintaining unity.
