Message sent by Reverend Sandi to the congregation on May 3, 2017.
Dear Members and Friends of WPUMC:
Many of you were in worship on Sunday or have heard through media outlets that the Judicial Council of the UMC issued a ruling on the question concerning the election of our conference's episcopal leader, Bishop Karen Oliveto. It is a complex and confusing ruling, and there has been a lot of misunderstanding about it. Bishop Karen was not removed from the episcopacy, but the Judicial Council referred the matter back to the Western Jurisdiction Council of Bishops.
I've responded to half a dozen emails already this week from those of you who want more information, or who want to know how to show support of Bishop Karen and desire to see full inclusion in our denomination. This is a time of great tension in our denomination, and it doesn't seem that it will be resolved quickly or painlessly. I am happy to be in conversation with anyone who would like to discuss this further. If you want to show support, letters of care to the Bishop are appreciated. There is a Facebook page (Mountain Sky Area Loves Bishop Karen), or you can email Bishop Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I believe one of the best things that we can do in this time is to continue to be the witness of love, grace and inclusion here in Wash Park that we have been for years. News updates are being posted on our church website (link below). Thank you for sharing your feelings, for being poised to take action when necessary, and for keeping this process in your prayers.
Rev. Sandi Dillon
Wash Park UMC, Senior Pastor
