Holy Conversations and Tough Issues
February 25, 2017
10:00am – 12:00pm
Location: 2314 North Grand Blvd, Pearland, Texas 77581
You’re invited to join a live streamed presentation in which Bishop Scott Jones will provide insights on upcoming action by the Judicial Council, the work of the Commission on a Way Forward, and updated information on the called General Conference which will be held in early 2019.
He will also discuss the meaning of holy conversation and explain the importance of respectful dialogue in the life of the United Methodist Church. He will then be joined
by Rev. Nathan Bledsoe and Rev. Jim Leggett who will model a holy conversation on the subject of human sexuality and the Church.
The Core Leadership Team of the Texas Conference was charged with the task of fulfilling a resolution which was passed unanimously to “continue to address issues that are sensitive and divisive, including but not limited to human sexuality, by fostering regular, intentional opportunities for learning, conversation, and fellowship.” This event is designed to equip pastors and leaders with information they may need to lead their churches effectively during this period of discernment.
Childcare will be available. Contact Erica Cano.
