Event Details

Featuring 

Reverend M Barclay

At the 2016 General Conference, it became apparent that issues relating to human sexuality in The United Methodist Church needed more study and reflection.  The Commission on a Way Forward was established to do a complete examination and possible revision of every paragraph of the Book of Discipline concerning human sexuality, and to explore options to maintain and strengthen the unity of the church.  That Commission will present its report to a special called session of General Conference in 2019.  To shed more light on this issue, Rio Texas MFSA is pleased to host Reverend M Barclay as keynote speaker for the 2018 Peace & Justice Luncheon.

Reverend Barclay is a deacon in the Northern Illinois Conference of The United Methodist Church and currently serves as Director of enfleshed (https://enfleshed.com), providing spiritual resources and faith education.  Originally from the Alabama-West Florida Conference, M received their M.Div. from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.  They have worked as a hospital chaplain, youth director, justice associate, and faith coordinator for reproductive justice in Texas prior to moving to Chicago in 2013.

M formerly served as Director of Communications at Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) where they advocated for queer and trans inclusion in The United Methodist Church.  As a life-long United Methodist, an openly queer and trans clergy person, and an advocate for God's expansive love, they are in a unique position to speak to the challenges before us in The UMC at this critical time in its history.

Join us for this on-site luncheon. In addition, we will honor the recipients of the MFSA “Building a Just Community” Awards.
