Recently the @UMChurch voted to reject its #LGBTQi participants, both lay & clerical.

But the #UMC of Gernany has rejected this vote.

"The UMC in Germany will therefore not follow the chosen way of controlling people in their disposition and imposing stricter penalties."

"Just as I watched over them to dig up and pull down,
so I will watch over them to build and plant, declares the Lord. "

Jeremiah 31.28

Thus begins the German church's response to the terrible decision made by a simple majority of the delegates at the Special Session.

Attached are screenshots of the entire powerful statement from the German Conference of the United Mrethodist Church.

Please read them.

The German response continued...

The German conference of the UMC continues...

The German conference of the UMC concludes:

The @UMChurch is about to learn some hard lessons about the true meaning of Grace, Courage, and Love.

The Western Conference of the US church had already expressed its rejection of the Traditional Plan.

Soon the @UMChurch is going to be overrun with like statements.

As the heart and mind of the body of the church begins a full scale repudiation of all that happened in St. Louis I hope that those who voted in this disaster will find their own hearts changed by the flood of love emanating from those who reject this rejection.

I want to thank my partner @revjelowe for connecting me to this news and the above statement and for the loving leadership he provides the congregants of @Firstumckenosha.

He is a case study for Grace and Humility and I am proud.
