GC 2016 Newsletter May 8: Welcome to Portland!

Masthead, May 8, 2016

We give thanks to God that you have arrived safely. We have been praying for you, and we know that God will be present in our work together during General Conference 2016.

The Love Your Neighbor Coalition is a group of 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.
