The Commission on the General Conference announced today that the 2020 General Conference cannot be held in 2022 due to COVID-related and governmental policies/constraints. For many members of Church of the Redeemer this is a disappointing announcement. Many in the church have been waiting for the General Conference and even though this might be the right decision at this time, it doesn’t remove the hurt the current situation causes the LGBTQ+ community. To quote the statement from the Reconciling Ministry Network:
These circumstances only prolong the road to justice for our LGBTQ+ kin and to parity in the global Church. We know that you may be feeling disappointed, hurt, or tired.
