Episcopal Address 2023

These two years until the 2024 General Conference is critical to our future as United Methodists. We can no longer deny that our church is having an internal crisis due to the polarizing stand on human sexuality. So divisive that it has grouped us into Traditionalists, Centrists and Progressives and there are still others who are outside these categories.
