The Plumblines listed in the menu of the left are not written yet, but they are ones that we believe will probably be needed for the petitions and resolutions that we anticipate will be submitted for the 2016 General Conference in Portland, Oregon.

What are Plumblines?
They are an indepth analysis of the issues and petitions/resolutions before the United Methodist Church at their next General Conference. They do not cover every petition or resolution for General Conference, but are inclusive of the issues and positions that the Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA) is advocating for at General Conference.
They are a gift from MFSA to all United Methodists and our Love Your Neighbor Coalition partner organizations. They are hoped to inspire us all as we all strive to discern God's will for our lives and denomination; and, as we work together to make our world, communities and homes examples of Christ-like love and Beloved Community.
The Love Your Neighbor Coalition
Find us at www.generalconference2012.org for general information
or at www.gc12.org if you want to work with us.
We are a combination of 6 United Methodist caucus groups that have come together to work at the intersections of justice and full inclusion. Our goal is to help inspire our United Methodist Churches and members to become more grace-filled, loving and compassionate for ALL. Our vision is rooted in the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) to love God, neighbor and self; and, in our Wesleyan heritage that we are being called toward and can together achieve, God's perfect love.
