Should the apology happen in 2012?????

If you have read the Resolution (referenced in full on the link below), is this apology something that the church is really honest about? and should it happen at General conference 2012?

Since no one we have contacted has bothered to sign in and make comments, answer the questions ask by our Native leadership, I think it's a mute point with most Indian people in UMC. If I am wrong, say so! Add your comments, suggestions, prayers, wishes, etc.

Otherwise, maybe someone should tell the church, we don't really care!

Why should we care, if that is your opinion?

Is anyone out there interested?

This link will take you to the exact wording of the three resolutions we are concerned with for 2012. Page 10, 11 and 12 in the Rocky Mt. Conf. Native Ministries Comprehensive Plan. Feel free to see the entire Plan if you have time.

NAIC requests you input. See the posts below and sign in to the blog to post your comments.

It is our prayer that these resolutions will honor His name and make our church a better place for Native people to find spiritual, mental, physical and emotional health.

What say you?
