Right to Worship (80129-FO-R9999)

Add new resolution as follows:
Right to Worship

Whereas the theme of the evangelism campaign is Open hearts, Open minds, Open doors:

whereas the life teaching and resurrection of Jesus invites all people to receive the grace of God

whereas within the United Methodist church many people are being denied access to worship by local congregations and church leaders.

Therefore be it resolved that the right to be welcomed into the community of the church or the right (ability) to worship in the house of God should not be denied to any persons based on any social status or previous social decisions.

Therefore be it further resolved that no person should be excluded from worship and/or participation in the life of the church. on the basis of race, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation, or history.
