Well, the 2000 General Conference is history. It has been a watershed. This is truly a pivotal year. The decisions made here were very positive on the whole, for evangelical United Methodists. Some important things to celebrate are:
The one negative I see at this point is the lack of a will to include any real level of accountability towards those who choose to disregard the Discipline and the doctrines of our church. That means we will probably see many more of the church trials in the days ahead. We must be diligent and prayerful as we approach these difficult days.
We must not gloat and become over confident because of what has happened in Cleveland. It is time for humble gratitude, new resolve towards faithfulness to our covenant with God, and determination to minister His love with a fresh commitment and passion.
God bless you for your faithful prayers.
