Connectional Table: Continuing Conversation
Join the conversation
As part of its work to discern and articulate the vision of the church, the Connectional Table actively seeks opportunities to listen and engage in dialogue about the needs of the worldwide church.
Bishop John Hopkins, former chair, emphasizes that the body is a “table, not an agency” that gathers “the right groups at the right time around the right issues for conversation and momentum,” bringing such discussions from “parking lots and hallways into the living room of the church.”
In 2014 and 2015, the Connectional Table hosted a series of online discussions around the topics of human sexuality and church law and the challenges of doing effective ministry in differing geographical and cultural contexts (often referred to as “the worldwide nature of the church”).
Below you will find archives of these conversations along with accompanying resources around these important issues.
