The Sturgeon Bay UMC Forum had the privilege of hearing retired Bishop William B. Lewis speak to us about the future of the United Methodist Church. The church is struggling as to how to deal with LGBTQ issues in our church. It appears that the Judicial Council of the General Conference will be taking up the subject in the near future. It was a very interesting discussion. Below are links to a commentary that Bishop Lewis wrote in 2017, as well as a number of videos by Bishop Sandra Steiner Ball about “The Way Forward”.
