Subject: [UnitedMethodists] Lake Junaluska Cancellation
"A mission organization for Episcopalians has cancelled plans to meet at United Methodism's Lake Junaluska conference center. The cancellation came in response to Lake Junaluska's hosting the pro-homosexuality ≥Hearts on Fire≤ event over Labor Day weekend.
The Episcopal Church Missionary Community (ECMC) typically attracts over 1,000 people to its regular "New Wineskins" gatherings. In reaction to "Hearts on Fire," ECMC rescheduled and relocated New Wineskins away from fall 2006 at Lake Junaluska to spring 2007 at Ridgecrest, a Southern Baptist-owned facility not far from Lake Junaluska in western North Carolina. "
Is there a shift in ecumenism?
