Circles of Grace

We are not of one mind when discussing human sexuality and the United Methodist Church.  Specifically, the issues of ordination and homosexuality have proven to be particularly divisive.

This September, all clergy and laity of the West Ohio Conference are invited to participate in a respectful, grace-filled conversation called Circles of Grace around these issues.  We pray these conversations are the beginning of a way forward as we strive to minister together in unity rather than division.

Please prayerfully consider being a part of these intentional opportunities for dialogue.  Any learnings from this Circles of Grace process will become a resource to the Annual Conference's life, including the 2016 General and Jurisdictional Conference Delegates as well as the Extended Cabinet and the Board of Ordained Ministry.
