And so now some 80 pastors and theologians have stated its time the UM realizes the progressives and conservatives cannot find common ground so its time to find an amicable parting of ways.

Tonight, I sat in the small contemporary service of the church I serve. My church is a moderate church. There are those on both sides of the homosexual issue. My church is a uniting between two churches. There are still people who lament the decision to go with chairs rather than pews. But as I worshipped tonight I watched how these dear, dear saints with differing theologies in areas of belief and different traditions which are sacred to them let those differences dissolve and passionately worshipped Jesus. And during the week they passionately serve the poor, study Scripture, seek to love God and love people–despite some major disagreements.

What the hell is wrong with our denomination?
