Good news on security of appointment in the UMC!
The Judicial Council of the UMC released a crucial ruling today. It upheld security of appointment and fair process as absolute rights of the clergy that could not be eradicated by legislation, and it also found that the General Conference violated the third and fourth restrictive rules. I am grateful for and inspired by all you DDS UMC grads who, for years, have been willing to be pains in the patooky for the sake of the annoying truthy truth. (That is NOT to encourage our being annoying just for the heck of being strange.) Final word for this Sunday night? Praise God!
