Dear Bishop Webb,
All people (God’s children) should be treated as equals, regardless of their sexual orientation. People do not choose their sexual orientation and cannot be “changed”.
Are all points of the discipline being adhered to, to the letter or are some being interpreted?
Can we, the Methodist Church afford to lose compassionate, loving, thoughtful Pastors because of an antiquated rule written to satisfy our puritan background?
In today’s world, we need to adjust to the reality of mankind.
As sixty some years as Methodists, we hate to see our church disintegrate because we are not able to adjust to GOD’S TRUTH AND COMPASSION.
Prayers and grace,
Jeff and Shelia Carpenter
Tabernacle United Methodist Church
Open minds, open hearts, open doors really!
