Companions Bible Study The foundational Companions experience takes groups through a journey of five parts, each lasting 5-6 weeks. Participants follow the same pattern each week - a weekly reading and five daily exercises followed by a two-hour group meeting. During the meeting, participants share their insights from the past week’s daily exercises, and then engage in a deeper exploration together. The Companions study begins Tuesday, October 17 from 12 - 1:30pm. Bring your lunch! Interested persons can sign up in the narthex or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Naked Church: Conversations on Faith and Sexuality October 29, 3:00 pm Fellowship Hall- POSTPONED The global denomination of which we are a part, The United Methodist Church, has been a community divided on matters of human sexuality for many years. Some portions of the denomination seek full affirmation and inclusion of persons without regard for self-understanding, identification, relationship status, and other markers we use to label ourselves and others. At the same time other portions of The UMC seek to maintain or strengthen words of limits, prohibitions, and exclusion based on particular readings of scripture and church tradition. “A Way Forward” is a commission formed by the 2016 General Conference of The UMC. General Conference is an elected, representative body of the church that meets every four years and is the only official voice of the denomination. “A Way Forward” was formed to fashion a report with recommendations for a specially called 2019 General Conference session that may affirm the unity of the denomination or vote on a separation of the denomination into two or more new bodies with diverse understandings and practice on human sexuality or may move to some other agreement.
It is important that local congregations of The United Methodist Church understand all that has gone into this place that feels like impasse. At the heart of that understanding is a prayerful conversation with God on how we read scripture with willingness to hear and be changed, how we celebrate tradition without idolatry, how we stay mindful of things we learn daily about what it is to be full sexual human beings, and how we honor our own experiences and the experiences of others along the way. Our conversation on October 29th will consider sacred all of these matters.
