For an overview of the upcoming General Conference, please look through this slide show prepared by Abel Vega, Rio Texas Conference Director of Outreach Vitality.
|The Love Your Neighbor Coalition consists 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?” – 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 and prophets” together with our contemporary Book of Discipline, Social Principles, and Book of Resolutions. Our mission is to assure The United Methodist Church is fully open to the presence, love and grace of God offered to all people.
LYNC is a coalition of thirteen partner organizations, and each has agreed to work together around the intersections of common justice issues and shared values.
