A word from the outset--
I'm an advocate for The United Methodist Church to change its current position on human sexuality. If you are as well, I invite you to join me and sign on with our sister church in the Tennessee Conference, Belmont, who has been working to formulate petitions to the 2016 General Conference to amend all prohibitive and discriminatory language around LGBTQ matters. If you are of that mind and heart, you may do that here: If by some miracle I'm on the floor of General Conference and eligible to vote when it comes up, I will be casting my vote that way.

The preaching was prophetic, the service opportunities were world-changing and the sense of community was strong.Learn more
