The three messages main native Methodist Church buildings to query whether or not there shall be Normal Convention in 2022

On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, the Fee on the Normal Convention met to debate if there could be a Normal Convention in 2022. Whereas no official announcement has been made, one can simply surmise what is going to the message shall be when an announcement is launched  by reviewing the next messages and occasions that occurred after the assembly:

When the UMC cancelled the Normal Convention in 2020 and 2021, the identical messaging sample occurred. Tales setting forth  excuses, blogs demanding endurance, and nothing that may lead anybody planning on attending a worldwide occasion to imagine that the  occasion would truly occur occurred. All the earlier messaging led to the conclusion that there could be no Normal Convention in 2020 and once more in 2021. I worry the identical is true for 2022.

Whereas we nonetheless have no idea if the Normal Convention shall be held, there are a selection of issues your church can do to arrange for the announcement. On this video, Dan Dalton discusses what native church buildings ought to do whereas they wait to see if there shall be a Normal Convention.


Sturdy leaders with an considerable provide of braveness is  wanted presently.

As Howard Thurman famous in his traditional ebook, Jesus and the Disinherited, “The motion of the Spirit of God within the hearts of women and men typically calls them to behave towards the spirit of their instances or causes them to anticipate a spirit which is but within the making. In a second of dedication, they’re given knowledge and braveness to dare a deed that challenges and to kindle a hope that evokes.”

The act of leaving the denomination is basically certainly one of civil disobedience. It takes an excessive amount of braveness to maneuver by means of this course of. We’re right here to assist. In 2021, we helped fifty 4 (54) church buildings go away the denomination, and within the first month of 2022, we’ve helped three (3) go away. All the church buildings have succeeded and grown larger than they imagined.


One ultimate observe. Thanks to the lots of of you who’ve reached out with notes of encouragement. We knew the Bishops and different “spiritual leaders” whose energy and affect is threatened by wholesome native church buildings leaving the United Methodist Church would lash out and “blame the legal professionals.”

Harm folks do certainly, harm different folks. We, nevertheless, take consolation within the gospel message:

“Blessed are you when folks insult you, persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil towards you due to me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, as a result of nice is your reward in heaven, for in the identical manner they persecuted the prophets who have been earlier than you.” Matthew 5, 11-12
