LITANY OF CONVICTION
To the decisions made at General Conference that demean and devalue our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters.
In the midst of this turmoil and pain, this church says to each of you,
Whether you are long-time Methodist, first-time Methodist or not a Methodist, we say to each of you,
Those of every age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic condition, family structure and physical or mental ability, we say to each of you,
If you are just getting to know God, have known God your whole life or your relationship is complicated,
Do not leave this room today without hearing these words,
God’s doors are open to all.
In this place, First United Methodist Church of Gainesville, FL, may each of us proclaim with the words of our lips and the actions of our lives,
God’s doors are open to all!
