Heather Hahn, from the United Methodist News Service, wrote a excellent article titled Scholars raise doubts about church’s future!. Here is a link to the complete article.
Heather’s article focused on a meeting, sponsored by the United Methodist Board of Higher Education and Ministry, titled Unity of the Church and Human Sexuality: Toward a Faithful United Methodist Witness.
The meeting brought together scholars from across the theological spectrum, from three countries, and included 8 members from the United Methodist Commission on the Way Forward.
The article covered the topic of human sexuality from several different angles, but one particular comment was particularly telling,
‘The Rev. Christopher H. Evans, professor of History of Christianity and Methodist Studies at Boston University School of Theology, told the group that they were dealing with questions he had heard since his seminary days in the 1980s.’
