I enjoyed reading your perspective and am conflicted about this myself. The UMC will vote on this again in 2020. Also, the majority of U.S. churches voted for inclusion, whereas many others (primarily African) voted against inclusion. Since the UMC is a global church, this presented a division that isn’t present in churches that don’t have a global denomination. The issue is far from over, and could result in a split from the global church.
