What do you think about the global church?

At the Executive Committee meeting on January 23 in Salem, we will begin a study of the report from the Study Committee on the Worldwide Nature of the UMC. Everyone is invited to join us for the discussion and business meeting.

This report was described in a previous post and is available to download as a pdf file. Our discussion this time will focus on the sections of the report on the first three pages. We invite you to read the same sections and post your comments here.

Our goal is to have as many United Methodists as possible become familiar with these proposed changes. It may seem far away from our daily lives in Oregon and Idaho, but in reality it is vital to have a church structure that enables us to do the work of justice in the world to which we have been called.
