Statement of Purpose

(revised 9/2/16; originally adopted Nov 13, 2004)

We, the Reconciling United Methodists of the Oregon-Idaho Annual Conference, in order to embody "open hearts, open minds, open doors" will:

  • help Oregon-Idaho United Methodist Churches and ministries be places of welcome and safety for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) persons and become more inclusive in their day-to-day life, language, witness, and teaching;
  • provide resources and support to local churches and ministries to help them discuss, develop, and publish statements that proclaim their welcome to all persons, specifically every race, nationality, age, gender, social condition, ability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, previous faith experience, and questioners; and
  • state clearly that "we are not leaving" the United Methodist Church and that we will find ways to promote unity.

OI RUMs Purple Ribbon

The ribbon is in support of gay clergy everywhere -- some of whom serve in silence, some of whom are able to be open and fully themselves. One or more may have crossed your path -- in your church, in another church, in your education, in your community, in your family.

purple ribbon with gold lettering that reads `I was pastored by gay clergy'; the RMN logo; and Reconciling United Methodists.
