“The LGBTQIA community is here. Our United Methodist LGBTQIA community is here. My LGBTQIA community is here,” said Rev. Carol Zaagsma, an alternate clergy delegate who serves Portland Avenue UMC in Bloomington. “We are delegates, we are reserve delegates, we are laity, we are clergy, we are observers, and we have been witnesses and subjects of a great injustice and devastation in the actions of this General Conference…I lament, and I invite you into this space with me.” Hear and reflect on this brave and powerful witness.
