and the RMN is what?

The Reconciling Ministries Network and Love Prevails (sadly both are mislabeled) push for disobedience yet your "concern" about them seems rather muted.

Revisionists have created an unsustainable situation where traditionalists are compelled to subsidize situations that are not only schismatic and disobedient but bear no fruit. The Western Jurisdiction does not pay for their own bishops. They may NO contribution toward the retirees or the central conference bishops. So, those of us who pay our apportionments in full are paying for Bishops Oliveto and Talbert.

Covenant

The UMC covenant is broken, perhaps beyond repair. We have churches signing up to the Reconciling Ministries organization which is dedicated to covenant breaking. The WCA is trying to stay within the confines of the UMC BoD. It will strengthen the UMC covenant not weaken it. Whether or not it can remain that way is to be determined.

Welcome to Big Tent Methodism

Are we having fun yet? This is what you get when the only statement that adequately describes the American branch of the UMC is open doors, open hearts, open minds which equates to collectively we believe nothing in particular! We have gone way beyond John Wesley's prediction that Methodism would become the form of religion without the power because collectively we have absolutely no idea of what we believe about God and ourselves which means we have no idea who we are and what it is we are supposed to be doing! We are a gianourmous square raft with umpteen oars lining each side of the raft paddling the best each knows how. Two different subsets of oars are now trying to become the rudder to steer the church in their particular direction! On one level I root for the WCA. But on another level I am very weary of being part of a church that has degenerated into nothing more than competing factions who are jockeying for position and power!
