Table Talks: Finding a Way Forward Together

What to Expect

United Methodists in the Alaska, Oregon-Idaho and Pacific Northwest Conferences are being encouraged to participate in Table Talk conversations being planned in various settings across the Greater Northwest Area. These opportunities will provide attendees a way to engage the church's current discussion of human sexuality and the report of the Commission on a Way Forward within a structure of worship and respect for one another. To develop that sense of respect, participants are asked to commit to a convent for respectful dialog. In short, the covenant asks them to:
1. Stay Curious,
2. Be Kind, and to
3. Listen with the same amount of passion with which I want to be heard.
Both worship and a covenant for respectful dialog are essential when we ask for God to be present in our conversations and recognize that we can sometimes get in the way of that. All across the area are asked to seriously consider participating in one of these opportunities.

  • April 15, Sunday: Portland FUMC 2:30-5:30 p.m.

Action Request - Single-user, gender-neutral, accessible, lockable-restrooms

On June 12, 2015, the Oregon-Idaho Annual Conference approved our Action Request "Single-user, gender-neutral, accessible, lockable rest rooms" with one amendment (from "require" to "recommend"). Providing information about this need will allow caring congregations to implement the action as soon as they are able.
