United Methodist Church delegates and leaders will gather in St. Louis, Missouri, Feb. 23-26 for a Special Called Session of General Conference to take up significant work on an issue that has caused great division in our church for years.
As we begin a new year with excitement and anticipation, let us remember in prayer those who have been hurt over the course of our debate, as well as those who serve in leadership throughout the United Methodist Church.
In that spirit, I commend to you this pastoral letter from the Council of Bishops.
Grace and Peace,
L. Jonathan Holston
