Who Needs the Methodist Church?
Jeff Walton, Institute on Religion and Democracy
A liberal dissident group including current and former United Methodist clergy recently convened to hear the stories of three clergy persons and their same-sex partners. The dinner and presentation were hosted by the Church Within A Church Movement (CWACM) outside the United Methodist General Conference in Tampa on May 1.
"We are being church -- you don't need to have someone's permission to be church," CWACM's Cathy Knight proclaimed.
