Called To Witness: Welcome
Welcome!We are excited that you are journeying with us as we work to mobilize United Methodists of allsexual orientations and gender identities to transform our Church and world into the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love.In 2009 we are excited to participate in our third year of the Called to Witness Program. We willwork together to grow our movement by organizing in our individual annual conferences and engagingpeople in our work for equality at small group gatherings. We have wonderful fruits from our work overthe past two years, which you can find on page seven of this manual – and look forward to seeing how ourwork creates a tidal wave in our church of energy and action.Please never hesitate to contact us with questions or suggestions for how things could beimproved. With your help, we anticipate a wonderful year ahead!Sincerely,Rev. Troy Plummer Rev.
