#give53 Love Prevails invites you to give a recurring or one-time donation of $53. WHY 53? At the 2012 General Conference, delegates voted by a mere 53% to pass the following addition to the introduction to our Social Principles: “We stand united in declaring our faith that God’s grace is available to all—that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.”
WHY did this statement committed to GRACE PASS BY ONLY 53%?? The debate on the statement made it obvious: to affirm that God’s grace is available to ALL treads dangerously close to affirming LGBTQ people. As we move towards General Conference 2016, Love Prevails invites you to #give53, joining the 53% of United Methodists willing to affirm that God’s grace is available to ALL people.
You have come to count on Love Prevails to do the work to #Showup and#Disrupt. We need your support to do so. We seek 25 of our supporters to give us $53 per month for ten months, seeing us to and through General Conference. #give53 for Grace. Please consider a recurring or one-time donation. #give53
