Conversations On A Way Forward ... Sunday, April 22 @ 2:30 pm

On Sunday, April 22, we will welcome Iowa Conference Bishop Laurie Haller to Cedar Falls First UMC to lead conversations on the proposals from the Commission on a Way Forward.  These proposals address the way(s) in which we might maintain church unity while living in a time of controversy regarding issues of human sexuality.  

What’s it all about? 

It is clear that continual debate will not win all of us over to the same understanding of human sexuality issues, so rather than continue that unproductive debate, a new question arises: How do we go forward in ministry together with people with whom we disagree?  

Bishop Laurie will present two models for how our United Methodist Church may allow space for people of all perspectives to worship and minister with each other.  This event will be heavily weighted toward small-group discussion, idea-sharing, and reflection.  

All United Methodists in the Northeast District - including you! - are invited to join us for this special and important event.
