Love from a Lutheran Pastor to Methodists In Their Grief

Love from a Lutheran Pastor to Methodists In Their Grief February 26, 2019

To my Methodist friends: I’m really sorry. We see you, and hear your pain. Praying for all of us as we advocate for marriage equality in the church and LGBTQ+ clergy in our pulpits.

Remember that really and truly so many of us have learned to be better Christians because of you.

Remember that line of Edwin Friedman: “You have not accomplished change until you have survived the sabotage.”

Remember that we are in full communion with you, so your pain is also our pain, and we are here with you in Christ.

And more than anything else, remember that you are loved. We love you.
