The road of discriminatory hermeneutics and practices has been long. The path to inclusion of marginalized people is always difficult. The history that has led up to the called General Conference in February 2019 started with those who wanted to defend slavery and continues with the arguments of those who want to defend exclusion of others based on sexuality and orientation because it is in the Bible. There is an inter-connectional nature to all this. You are invited to come and see what it is.
