Faith leaders from across California-Nevada have come together to create compelling videos and webinars that will launch in February for the Western Jurisdictional campaign Where Love Lives. February’s theme is Committed to our Wesleyan roots: The inseparability of Personal Piety and Social Holiness. Three new weekly video series and the ongoing weekly Wednesday webinars will explore theological concepts with a current-day lens, examine district initiatives rooted in our Wesleyan heritage, and engage children across the jurisdiction around timeless Wesleyan values.
January’s messages for the Western Jurisdiction’s #WhereLoveLivesUMC campaign address a topic that has separated many people from one another, the subject of marriage equality. Use the resources provided to Invite your community to find the non-anxious presence of God deep in their souls as we journey together through the month.
In this video launching the new “Where Love Lives” campaign, the Bishops of the Western Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church remind us who God calls the Church to be: a faithful, inviting, open, safe and loving home for all people.
‘Where Love Lives, Creating a Fully Inclusive United Methodist Church’; Western Jurisdiction Beginning Year-long Campaign
The Western Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church is beginning preparations for the next General Conference by recommitting itself to be a faithful, inviting, open, safe and loving place for all people.
Western bishops lead with grace not persecution. Active United Methodist Bishops in the Western Jurisdiction announce their intention to set aside complaints against clergy accused of being gay or performing LGBTQ+ weddings, urge others to join them. #UMC4All
We believe theological diversity is critical for the vitality of The United Methodist Church. We seek to help our churches as we live into this new future.
