Bishops’ Resolution on Iraq
November 8, 2002
We have gathered as Bishops of the United Methodist Church in prayer, discernment, and conferencing at our Fall 2002 meeting in Puerto Rico. We have been especially blessed by the session on the theme of children and poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean with our colleague bishops and presidents from Latin America and the Caribbean.
We affirm the letter calling for peace sent to the Church by the president of the Council of Bishops. Recalling the biblical witness and our United Methodist tradition with respect to the issues of war and peace, we invite United Methodists to prayer, fasting, and sign acts for peace.
