Dispatch from Portland 3
A short post....
As I write this tonight, 9:18 pm. PST, the Council of Bishops remain in session. The General Conference has asked the Bishops to convene to offer a way forward how we might transcend the impasse on human sexuality. They bring that word to us tomorrow.
Bishops have no binding authority on the General Conference, and yet the General Conference is pleading for leadership.
I'll report and reflect tomorrow on what they bring, and all that has occurred during the sessions this week.
Pray for our Bishops tonight. Pray for those who have been harmed by our decades of inaction. Pray for the unity of the Church.
