Pastor and consultant Marty Cauley states, “This is my church, this is my family, and I’m staying.”
Currently the Director of Coaching and Content for the North Carolina Conference of The UMC, the Rev. Dr. Martin Cauley concedes, “The United Methodist Church is far from perfect.”
Looking toward next week’s opening of General Conference he continues, “There are times when the idea of locking 2,000 people in a convention center and feeding them a high carb diet and expecting them to make good theological decisions seems ludicrous.
Yet he concludes, “In the end, I love The United Methodist Church, I believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to help us overcome the ‘humanness’ of our church and will guide us to continue to do all the good we can, in all the ways we can, wherever we can and to continue to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the corner and around the world.”
