Draw the Reconciling Circle Wider

As a Reconciling United Methodist, you play crucial roles in the work of advancing LGBTQ justice and inclusion in The United Methodist Church.

You’re an advocate, a friend, a teacher, a guide, a witness, and more. And you belong to a network of over 43,000 others just like you.

Now, we’re asking you to forward this email to a friend, family member, or fellow church member that may not know about Reconciling Ministries Network. We want to make sure that everyone who needs RMN and everyone who supports our vision is equipped to advocate, befriend, teach, guide, and witness like you do.

When they’re ready, your loved ones can sign up as a RUM here.
