Proposal Ready for Methodist Bishops

A Gift to the World: Co-Laborers for the Healing of Brokenness, which proposes full communion, is ready for review by United Methodist bishops. The Episcopal-United Methodist Dialogue Committee met on Oct. 1-2 at the Nicholas Center in downtown Chicago.

The document is now in its definitive form. It will proceed to the United Methodist Church’s Council of Bishops for preliminary action in the first week of November.

Discussion of the proposal is expected at the United Methodists’ General Conference in 2020 and General Convention in 2021. Before consideration by the churches’ respective assemblies, the proposal will be translated into Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Kiswahili for further review.
