In May, over a hundred United Methodist clergy signed a letter to their denomination coming out as LGBTQ. Many of these were PSR alumni/ae. On September 27, 2016 we held this panel to hear from some of them about the consequences of that action and their successes and challenges in advocating for more inclusive policies within the United Methodist Church on LGBTQ issues. Our Panelists include:
Our Panelists Included:
– Rev. Jeanelle Nicolas Ablola, Lead Pastor at Pine United Methodist Church, San Francisco.
– Rev. Israel I. Alvaran, Western Regional Organizer with Reconciling Ministries Network.
– Rev. Brian Adkins, Pastor and Resident-in-Ministry at Open Door UMC
