From The United Methodists (and others)
The United Methodist Church is studying a draft proposal to establish full Communion relationship with The Episcopal Church, a significant step toward bringing the two churches into a closer, visible unity.
Bishop Gregory V. Palmer of the Ohio West Episcopal Area and Bishop B. Michael Watson, the Council of Bishops Ecumenical Officer, presented the proposal during the ecumenical report at the Council of Bishops spring meeting in Dallas, Texas.
“Over the coming months the dialogue team, co-chairs, and ecumenical staff will solicit input from our bishops, ecumenical networks, and other bodies before developing this draft into an official resolution to be acted upon by our respective legislative bodies,” Bishop Palmer, who is co-chair of The Episcopal-United Methodist Dialogue Committee, told his fellow bishops.
