You Are a Beloved Child of God
Tonight we will host our 4th annual Crackers & Grape Juice pre-Annual Conference Live Podcast recording. We kicked off this tradition in Roanoke, Virginia, and this year we return to where it all started. Our guests are Jeff Mullinix and Steve Shamblin-Mullinix.
Jeff and Steve are longtime Crackers & Grape Juice listeners turned guests turned friends. With the dust from the 2019 Special Sex Conference hosted by the General Conference of the United Methodist Church, it is unclear what will happen next. Jeff and Steve will join us in Roanoke at Ballast Point Brewing Company to discuss what they have been doing since February and what they are looking to next as they find their footing in the new ministry field created by the delegates in Saint Louis.
As you make the drive to Roanoke for Annual Conference, take a moment and listen to what Jeff and Steve told us back in February. Their ministry and witness are needed more than ever as the United Methodist Church muddles its way forward.
In an effort to provide honest conversations from the 2019 Special General Conference, the Crackers & Grape Juice team invited supporters of all of the plans being considered by the United Methodist Church’s governing body to explain why the plan they support is the correct plan.
Former alumni of Bob Jones University and current members of the West-Ohio Conference, Rev. Jeff Mullinix and Steve Shamblin-Mullinix share their thoughts on the Special UMC General Conference, recalling their calling into ministry and forced removal because of their sexual identity.
