On Sun. June 2 we reported on the events of our Baltimore-Washington Annual Conference of this past week. At all three services, our Lay Representative Scott Reed reported on Conference highlights; and Pastor Doug & I (Pastor Lori) talked with the congregation about the Conference’s approval and ordination of two gay candidates for pastoral ministry. This ordination of gay candidates for ministry is widely agreed to be in violation of the current Book of Discipline, but many believe that the policy itself is unjust and actually does not reflect the full Gospel of Jesus Christ as we have it in the Bible. In our brief discussion of this, we shared the video of several different persons from our Conference (some laity, some clergy) talking about their understandings, pains, hopes and perspectives on this issue.
