Judicial Council decisions
A few days past the Judicial Council's decision to uphold the VA Pastor's decision, I am hoping we can initiate a dialogue in this forum about what decisions like this mean for those of us preparing for Ordination in this denomination. I have to begin by saying how disheartening it is for me as a Methodist to feel as if our denomination is moving further and further apart and that the Church at large (through this Judicial decision) is showing itself to be a place that does not have "Open Minds, Open Hearts and Open Doors."
Responses??? Anyone feeling disenchanted and angry as well????
