Local UMC Conference Delegate Shares Perspective
The United Methodist Church met in St. Louis, Missouri, for its General Conference. It's a time when the denomination brings together delegates from churches around the world to discuss and vote on proposed changes to church policy. This year’s meeting was highly anticipated because of the vote on issues affecting Methodists in the LGBTQ community. Reverand Amy Wilson Feltz, Associate Pastor at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Abilene, attended as an alternate delegate, and describes her experience and her hopes for the church's response to the controversial vote.
