We want you to share your story.  Holston needs to know you exist, who you are.

 

Please share with other Holston United Methodists this video project.  The greater number of people who share their story, the greater our collective voice.  Below are the video instructions.  

 

Videos will be publicly shared on social media and other sources available.  Our goal is to have at least 10 videos before we publish.  Please pray with us that we may start publishing videos prior to AC2021.  

Video question:  Why do you work and pray for a fully inclusive church?

Please encourage others to be positively affected by your message.  Not all people accept the LGBTQ+ community as equals.  By posting your video, the goal is not to change someone’s mind but to change their heart.  “Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike?” (John Wesley)
