Recommended Reading: Roundup of statements on the church's future

Sam Hodges of United Methodist News Service wrote a good summary of the numerous statements that have come out from various groups and individuals about the future of The United Methodist Church in the past several weeks, many of them from outside the United States. True, other groups (such as Reconciling Ministries Network) not covered in the post have also made comments in the past several weeks, and the rundown predates the announcement of the further delay in General Conference and the naming of the Global Methodist Church. Still, the statements Hodges covers will continue to carry weight in denominational discussions. His summary is a good route into seeing how United Methodists have articulated some of the various positions within church politics that I laid out in the last post.
