Human Sexuality Task Force to present guide for holy conversation at AC2014

The Task Force on Human Sexuality, appointed in response to a resolution passed by the 2012 Annual Conference, will soon present the results of its work.
Its assignment was to develop a curriculum to facilitate conversations related to the issues of human sexuality, using the Wesleyan concept of holy conferencing.  The resulting resource, entitled “A More Excellent Way: Holy Conversations About Homosexuality,” will be published in June and presented at the 2014 Arkansas Annual Conference.
A printed guide will be included in the Annual Conference packets, and additional material and a video will be available for download through the Learning Management System. Conversations may take place in local churches, Sunday school classes or other small groups.
For more than 40 years, homosexuality has been a controversial topic in the United Methodist Church and at its quadrennial General Conferences. This task force hopes this resource will help facilitate respectful, scripturally-grounded conversations, to come to a better understanding of all sides of the issues involved.
