Capacity Crowd Attends First Town Hall Meeting
On Sunday afternoon a capacity crowd filled the modern worship space and an overflow room at Hillside UMC for the first of Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson's Town Hall meetings.
In a warm, personal conversation, Bishop Sue shared some of her faith journey, she discussed the Protocol of Reconciliation and Grace legislation that is before the 2020 General Conference, and she offered assurance that there is a place for each of us in The United Methodist Church now and in the future. She made it clear that she would not ask a pastor or congregation to violate their conscience around matters of human sexuality.
After the meeting, members from across the Atlanta-Marietta and Atlanta-Roswell Districts continued the conversation, chatting with Bishop Sue and one another.
Five more town hall meetings are set for the coming weeks. Attendees are encouraged to carpool, take a church van, or rideshare.
