East Ohio Forward is a joint effort between Centrists and Progressives.
Our opposition to the traditional plan is largely because it is divisive. East Ohio Forward is dedication to big-tent methodism, with room for both traditionalists and progressives.
Likewise, to be in a big-tent is to be both fully inclusive and contextual, allowing pastors and local churches to act according to their conscience and context when considering LGBTQ inclusion.
These values have been core to the development of the slate and remain core to our ongoing work.
We thank you for your commitment to the work of holding together the tension of diversity and unity.
