The Simple Plan

There are many proposals coming before the 2016 General Conference to be held in Portland, Oregon, May 10th through 20th regarding the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer persons in The United Methodist Church (The UMC).

These proposals—popularly called “plans”—are attempts to rescue the institutional church from 40+ years of discriminatory harm committed against LGBTQ United Methodists.

Reconciling Ministries Network wholeheartedly endorses The Simple Plan and passionately implores the whole people of God to join together for the passage of this plan at General Conference.

I encourage all followers of the to take a moment and read The Simple Plan and better understand the specifics behind the proposed changes in the Book of Discipline.  And for those that will be delegates to General Conference, may you prayerfully consider this Simple Plan to make a change for the better.
