Accountability dating a united methodist pastor
John Wesley formed the groups called "societies" and encouraged Methodists to meet weekly for mutual accountability and support.
A pastor was visiting a man who had fallen away from the church. A hot burning coal fell from the fire and turned slowly cold.
The first was back in the last week of September 2016 and raised the critical issue of the illegal election of a “married” lesbian pastor to the episcopacy in the United Methodist Church and now serving two conferences in the Western Jurisdiction!
There was also another issue I mentioned in that communication.
And no one except God Himself knows what contribution they would have made in the life and ministry of the church.
For anyone who has at least a tad of sensitivity, it is not at all pleasant to think about such a thing, is it?
In the “land of the free and the home of the brave” we have had conspiracies which have resulted in the intentional homicides of about 60 million unborn children in the last 44 years!
At the end of September 2016 I sent a letter to newly appointed Bishop Cynthia Moore-Koikoi of the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
So, when you use that word, “least,” to whom do you apply it?
At least a few, perhaps a very limited few, would agree that unborn children ought to be included.
I am a member and ordained elder in that conference and started my ministry within the former Erie Annual Conference in June 1959.
A few years later there was a merger which formed the Western PA Annual Conference.
