Without death, there is no resurrection. Out of the ashes of General Conference 2019, the Holy Spirit is already creating a new way forward for justice and inclusion of LGBTQ people in The United Methodist Church.
Our mission remains, and we are standing our ground. Will you stand with us?

Even as The UMC wrestles with its future, RMN’s mission remains unchanged. We are steadfast in our commitment to LGBTQ justice, not only where The UMC currently exists, but across the expanse of any future expressions of Methodism or denominations birthed out of the Wesleyan movement. Given that commitment, we invite you to join us in Nashville this February to bless one another’s liberative work and to accomplish the following:
- Mobilize Reconciling individuals who want to resist, reform, and build something new
- Resource and train Reconciling Churches and Communities to resist the Traditionalist Plan and affirm LGBTQ people in their local context
- Gather General Conference delegates to strategize toward GC2020
As United Methodists, we are called to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves. When oppression presents itself from within our Church, we have a God-given responsibility to respond with resistance renewed.
To this end, Reconciling Ministries Network has partnered with justice-oriented United Methodists from around the connection to coordinate and execute a Church-wide effort called Resist Harm to resist and reject the anti-LGBTQ Traditional Plan. In doing so, we join with representatives of Methodists for Social Action (MFSA), United Methodist Scholars, UMCNext, Mainstream UMC, Uniting Methodists, and more.
Resist Harm is not a coalition or a new organization. It is a movement, a collection of resources, and a call to action working to equip a growing movement of United Methodists opposing the Traditional Plan. With the punitive and dangerous Traditional Plan taking effect in only three weeks, we are asking Reconciling United Methodists to respond now with wholehearted courage.
