A Special Session of General Conference has been called for February 23-26, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri. The purpose of the special session is to act on a report by the Council of Bishops based on the proposals from the Commission on a Way Forward.
The 32-member Commission was created in 2016 by action of General Conference, which is the top legislative body – and the official voice – of The United Methodist Church.
The Commission on a Way Forward was tasked with completely examining, and possibly revising, every paragraph of The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church concerning human sexuality, and exploring options to help maintain and strengthen the unity of the Church.
Bishop Tracy S. Malone reminds us that, “The unity of the Church is all of our work to do. The unity of the Church is all of our conversations to have.”
