January 20 -- Sexuality Issue and the UMC
We're having this Sexuality conversation in preparation for our UMC's General Conference (worldwide gathering) Feb 23-26, 2019 that will address how we as United Methodists officially address this issue. We'll look at the three major options, what they involve and how they reflect our scripture and faith.
