Prayer Meeting on "A Way Forward"
As you may know, one of our ongoing conversations centered on issues
related to human sexuality made us realize that as United Methodist, we hold a wide range of positions on the topic. In light of this, a special session of General Conference is planned to be held in St. Louis in February 23 -26, 2919, and
along with other minor plans, the following “big” three plans will be discussed and voted upon: the Traditionalist Plan, the One Church Plan, and the Connectional Conference Plan. Since there are too much information to be explained, so I'd like to plan a class for us to gather together, have a discussion, and learn together of the plans, and pray for our denomination and our church. I'd like to share a video of Bishop Beard's previous briefings on this for those who didn't have a chance to attend and have a time to look over a book (see below) that covers fair amount of
details on the topic, with discussions and prayers to be followed. The following two dates will be available for me to meet with you either in the morning or evening respectively: Thursday, January 17th, 10:00am, and the following Wednesday, January 23rd, 6:00pm, both at the Sunday School room adjacent to the office, respectively. Limited copies of the book, "Living Faithfully - Human Sexuality and The United Methodist Church," will be available for purchase in the
church office for $8 each starting 2nd week of January. This book will give you some information on the issues the Special General Conference will be acting upon. Let me know if you have any questions prior to our meeting. Looking forward to seeing you there! You can reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 309-224-6420.
Your servant, pastor Rhee
