On February 9, 2020, Mt. Lebanon UMC held its second Unity Lunch to foster conversation around the current and potential legislation to be discussed at the 2020 General Conference concerning human sexuality. In the link below, you can hear Pastor Tom’s commentary on what the Book of Discipline specifically says concerning human sexuality and the biblical references that are often quoted in these discussions. Handouts are also available which he references in his talk.
At Mt. Lebanon UMC, we are striving to engage in conversation around the upcoming General Conference to best inform and educate our congregation on the potential outcomes. In these conversations we seek to strengthen trust among each other as we open up in Christian love about our own views, experiences, and concerns. We celebrate the Do No Harm ministry, a Reconciling Ministry group, that fosters an inclusive environment to explore questions, ministries, and actions to embrace and affirm all persons in full participation in the life of this community of faith. In addition the church council meeting each month dedicates time to update church members on current news and proposals that will be presented at the 2020 General Conference.
