Emerging is a space to invite critical thinking and reflection on what is emerging in Methodism

Can GC be virtual?

View interview with Bishop Thomas J. Bickerton, New York Episcopal Area, to hear about how General Conference might be held virtually in 2021, given the estimated continuing presence of the global coronavirus pandemic.

VISION

We aspire to forge a compelling consensus shared by a vast global community of “think and let think” disciples of Jesus Christ, affirming and claiming Methodism’s essential convictions about what to teach, how we teach, who we are and how, by the grace of God, we strive to live and be in ministry together.

PURPOSE

We will foster that reflection here, through an open-ended conversation about what is emerging in Methodism. By creating a web-based dialogue, we hope to engage United Methodists with a diversity of perspectives from across our worldwide connection in thinking deeply about what is emerging at this time in the life of our connection.
