A weekly news update from The Alaska United Methodist Conference – e~Aurora
Our denomination is in a struggle right now. At our General Conference we could not agree with each other about how the church embraces or doesn’t issues around our human sexuality and particularly regarding homosexuality, and the LBGTQI community. A commission was created, The Commission on the Way Forward, with our world wide church represented within that body, to discern over a two year period a way forward for us that we pray keeps us united. Beginning January of 2017, a commitment of prayer was called for that will run until a special session of the General Conference happens in mid 2018. Every Conference around the globe has been asked to take a week to intentionally pray for Christ’s body of the UMC. Our week in July 9-15. Here is the first day’s prayer to get you started. Even after this week your prayers are needed to help us move forward in the will of Christ for his church. God bless and keep you and our church in these days.
