Clarification of General Conference Response circulating on social media

Bishop Peter Weaver received an email on March 26, that included a link to a statement from persons concerned with the action of the 2019 General Conference.  The document linked with the email was entitled “Statement in Response to General Conference 2019 from the Undersigned of the Virginia Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church.”  

In receiving this response, Bishop Weaver stated that, as the interim bishop of the Virginia Conference, he is open to receiving responses from all perspectives related to the 2019 General Conference.  Bishop Weaver also wishes to clarify that the document he received is a response from persons who have chosen to sign the supporting document and is not a statement indicating an official response of the Virginia Annual Conference to the action of the 2019 General Conference.
