A Word of Apology


A few of my colleagues have suggested that I misrepresented their collective view on “virtual participation” in the General Conference or other connectional meetings.  I sincerely apologize for my misunderstanding and any distortion of the discussions among the Bishops and the meeting of the General Conference Commission.  Now that we have a better understanding, I will look forward to conversations in the near future.  I also pray the deliberations will lead to studies and draft implementation plans for virtual presence for our global gatherings as we wrestle with this pandemic.

  1. What collective view was misrepresented? I reread the message and am trying to see the problem. I cannot identify the misrepresentation.


    1. 1. A few bishops disagree that the matter was rejected. They say they favor technological advancement. The question was not yet mature in the development of the issue. 2. As there was no vote, some may argue that the collective will was not expressed. 3. I suggest folks ask their bishop and their representatives on the General Conference Commission for “their” opinion.
