What we believe to be true and necessary.

The UMC Constitution

The United Methodist Church proclaims the value of each person as a unique child of God and commits itself to the healing and wholeness of all persons.

The United Methodist Church recognizes that the sin of racism has been destructive to its unity throughout its history. Racism continues to cause painful division and marginalization.

The United Methodist Church shall confront and seek to eliminate racism, whether in organizations or in individuals, in every facet of its life and in society at large.

The United Methodist Church shall work collaboratively with others to address concerns that threaten the cause of racial justice at all times and in all places.

~from The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church 2016, paragraph 5



We stand in a place where opposites come together,

In a world of fault lines and fractures,

awaiting the birth of what is to come.

If you are doubting, welcome.

If you are healing, welcome.

If you are angry at injustice, welcome.

We await a new genesis,

one more beginning in a series of starts,

trailing backwards in time to the very first day.

If you are afraid, welcome.

If you are joyful, welcome.

If you are longing to belong, welcome.

God’s generous rhythm of life, death, resurrection,

moving in and through all things,

the very breath and source of the cosmos itself.

Our pathways converge and continue,

each one of us a catalyst for loving action.

We, a community of saints.


Breathe with us.
