Surrendering My Ordination

Standing for Gay and Lesbian Inclusivity in the United Methodist Church
$15.00

In May 2017, after sixty years as an ordained United Methodist minister, Rev. J.

By surrendering his ordination, he chose to join the group of devoted Christians outside the clergy who welcomed gay and lesbian individuals.
