(This letter is in response to Bishop Scott Jones's recent article here, "Blest Be the Tie That Binds.")
Dear Bishop Ough:
For years you have told the clergy of Minnesota to come and converse with you about doing same gender weddings in our churches and in our ministry. You have told us to stay within the letter of the church law so that you can support us. You have reminded us that United Methodists do not agree. You have been a voice for unity.

(From the Love Your Neighbor Coalition)
WE ARE United Methodists committed to the embodiment of God's love and justice within and through the people and mission of The United Methodist Church. The core of our faith is found in Jesus’ response to the question “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” – we are to “love God with all our heart, soul (being) and mind” and to “love neighbor as self”(Matthew 22:36-40). These hold ancient law, the prophets and the Gospel message together with our contemporary Book of Discipline and Book of Resolutions. To this end, OUR MISSION is to assure The United Methodist Church is fully open to the presence, love and grace of God offered to all the world.
Just as we are all interconnected and interdependent in the complexity of our relationships with God, humanity and all of creation, we recognize, acknowledge, and celebrate the ways all of the following concerns and hopes for our church are connected, interdependent and intersectional: Read the whole vision!
