The Thing No One Want to Talk About

For three days last month, I listened to people explain what the knew was going to happen at the called United Methodist General Conference in 2019. If you're not a UM, this is the global decision-making body and they will be discussing and (hopefully) finding a way for a diverse, global Christian denomination to overcome its inability to agree on doctrine regarding human sexuality. Human sexuality is the only topic that will be discussed so think of it as an international sex conference.

Anyway, anyone who is a leader in the UMC will tell you what they know will happen in 2019. The problem though, when we asked folks to say what they knew was going to happen into a microphone all of sudden they were gun-shy. The authority from which they spoke vanished and all the inside connections they had that had told them what was going to happen no longer existed.

This episode was supposed to be a collection of interviews about the Commission on The Way Forward. But because no one wanted to go on the record, Jason, Taylor, and I talk about the one thing that everyone wants to talk about but doesn't want to talk about.

Did you know we wrote a book?

Do us a couple of favors, would you?

  1. Buy the book. You can find it on Amazon here. Or go to and purchase it through the links at the bottom of the page.
  2. Tell other people about the book. Share the links above on social media. It gives you something to post other than cat pictures or your Trump rage.
  3. Leave a review of it in Amazon. It helps other people discover it.

Thank you to everyone who has purchased the book, shared it with a friend, and reviewed it on Amazon. It is humbling to know that so many support the podcast and the work done by the entire team.

Don't slack off on giving us ratings and reviews!
