Ninth Session of the Upper New York Annual Conference Thursday, May 31, 2018 Morning Plenary Upper New York Area Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb called to order the Ninth Session of the Upper New York Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. He welcomed all delegates and visitors and recognized first–time delegates. Seated on stage with Bishop Webb were Lay Leader Susan Hardy; Assistant Conference Secretary Jan Rothfuss; and Conference Secretary the Rev. Jeff Hodge. Hodge pointed out the bar of the Conference and explained the process for voting and being recognized to speak at a microphone. Organizational Motion Secretary Hodge explained that the Organizational Motion printed in the Conference Journal, Volume I, references the 2012 Book of Discipline instead of the 2016 Book of Discipline, but the paragraphs and language referenced are the same. The corrections will be reflected in the minutes. He moved adoption of the Organizational Motion. The Rev. Dr. Stephen Cady, pastor at Asbury First UMC in Rochester, made a motion that the deadline for the submission of petitions and resolutions for 2019 be March 15, 2019, with a May 1 publication date, to accommodate any petitions and resolutions that may be in response to the 2019 Special General Conference. Since the matter is not covered under the Organizational Motion, Bishop Webb declared Rev. Cady’s motion out of order. A vote was taken on the Organizational Motion as presented. It was adopted. Consent Calendar Secretary Hodge referenced page 9 of Volume I in the Journal and explained how to lift reports from the Consent Calendar. He also explained that four reports that were excluded from the list, but included in the journal are Africa University, pages 151 and 152; Boston University, pages 153–154; General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, pages 156 and 157; and New York State Council of Churches, pages 158– 60. Hodge moved passage of the Consent Calendar. Pastor Matt Slaven moved that both the budget and the nominations report be moved to the Consent Calendar. Bishop Webb noted to do that, he must first make a motion to suspend the rules, which required a 2/3 vote of the body. Pastor Slaven made a motion to suspend the rules so that the body could consider moving the budget and the nominations report to the Consent Calendar. 914 votes were cast; 609 yes votes were needed to pass. It received 483 yes votes, 431 no votes. The motion was not supported. A vote was taken to accept the consent calendar as presented. It was adopted. Monitoring Report Tom Blake, laity, representing Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) and Blenda Smith, laity, representing Commission on Religion and Race (CORR), explained that the UM Book of Discipline requires each Conference to monitor who is speaking at AC session. They do this so that every voice at the table has an opportunity to be heard. They tally each person who comes to the microphone in terms of clergy or laity, gender, race, and youth participation. While it is not an exact science, it does help to reflect inclusion and diversity of the sessions.

Bill Gottschalk–Fielding moved the adoption of the agenda as it is printed on pages 10 and 11 of the Conference Journal, Volume I. It was adopted.

Lay Leader Susan Hardy; the Rev. Drew Sperry, of the Saratoga Springs UMC and Saratoga Springs: UMCWest; and the Rev.

Valerie Clark, laity, and Dean of the Cabinet the Rev. Dr. Sherri Rood explained the need for the Vital Congregations Process and introduced the team’s recommendation that every congregation in Upper New York shall be required to use the VitalSigns Dashboard beginning September 1, 2018. Several spoke for and against the recommendation. Rev. Stephen Cady proposed an amendment to change the words “shall be required” to “shall be strongly encouraged.” The amendment was supported.

Conference Board of Trustees The Rev. Richard Barling, chair of the Board of Trustees, introduced the trustees, who presented the annual report. Rev. Barling presented a recommendation for Camp and Retreat Ministries: Be it further resolved that the recommended standing authorization to the Conference Trustees to sell, lease, convey, transfer, and exchange parcels of real property or other real property interests shall, in the event that it is adopted by the 2018 session of the Annual Conference, be subject to the ad interim consent requirements set forth in ¶2515 of The Book of Discipline governing the sale, transfer, and lease of Annual Conference real property, and further, remain in effect until further action by a future session of the Annual Conference. It was adopted. The Rev. Jack Keating, secretary of the Board of Trustees, presented the board’s Property Management Subcommittee. He explained that the subcommittee oversees the Conference’s 11 district parsonages and one episcopal residence; and the 21 properties identified as discontinued, closed, or abandoned. During 2017, the Board of Trustees sold nine of those properties, netting $266,000 to support the work of trustees, help with the Committee on Camp and Retreat Ministries (CCRM) expenses, and support the Conference’s new faith communities. He began by reading the Treasurer’s Report, provided by Kathy Griswold. It was noted that the net assets of the trustees declined by less than 1% or $90,000 in 2017 as compared with 2016, which saw a $1.2 million decline. Overall, the 2017 revenue sources increased by less than 6%. It was also reported that the Conference previously maintained a loan program, which was placed on hold in 2016. The current funds available and held by trustees is approximately equal to the outstanding balance of all the guaranteed loans, which is estimated at approximately $1,000,000. Peter Abdella, vice president of the Board of Trustees, reported for the insurance subcommittee. He reported that the trustees renewed our insurance program through Church Mutual Insurance Company. Church Mutual is providing the Conference with risk management training and education. The safety meetings will cover overall church safety issues with an emphasis on an active shooter situation. Church Mutual will provide more info on the water sensor technology program during the safety meetings. Discontinuance of local churches As part of the trustees’ work, the following churches were recommended for discontinuance: Binghamton: High Street Blockville Coopers Plain Earlvillle Ellenburg Jamestown: New Beginnings Fellowship Kenyontown

Lockwood Perrysburg–Dayton Rexford Stannards Vestal: Calvary Watervliet

Bishop Webb prayed for the mission and ministry of these churches. Discontinuance of the 13 churches is adopted. The report of the Trustees was placed before the conference for adoption.

2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

The Rev. Alan Kinney, retired, asked if for next year’s report, the trustees would provide a detailed report, rather than a narrative, of money spent and money received. Rev. Barling acknowledged the request and said they would make every effort to provide that. The Rev. Devin Lyles, pastor at the Rochester: The Pillar UMC, suggested that the trustees and the Conference find other ways to fund the new faith communities rather than through the New Beginnings Fund, which is financed by the discontinuance of local churches. The Trustees Report is adopted. Election of the trustees There are three vacancies to be elected by paper ballot. Secretary Hodge called for the tellers to distribute ballots and explained that three are to be elected. The legal mandate for the election of trustees by written ballot comes from Section 325 of the Religious Corporation Law, which applies, by way of Section 320 of the RCL, to all United Methodist Churches and “affiliated organizations.” Carol Hatfield, laity, asked that the candidates be introduced. Two of the candidates, Joyce Miller and Nathan Trost, were present and introduced. Anna Buell, clergy, offered prayer before the vote was taken. The written ballots were received by the tellers to be counted. Conference Chancellor Bishop Webb introduced and thanked Conference Chancellor Scott Delconte for his work with the Conference and for his ministry. Commission on A Way Forward The Rev. Dr. Scott Johnson, who serves on the Commission on a Way Forward, explained the prayerful and intentional process. Rev. Johnson explained that the commission met nine (9) times beginning in January 2017 and concluding a week before this Conference session. Throughout the process, the Commission did a lot of listening and learning, receiving input from a variety of constituencies and the Church at large. All of this culminated in a report to the Council of Bishops, which received the report and made a subsequent recommendation to the church. Bishop Webb thanked Rev. Johnson for his work and expressed his appreciation for the way the entire 32–member Commission on a Way Forward has approached its work. He also explained that the Council of Bishops has engaged at various points with this work in deep prayer, honest conversation, and acknowledgement of deep divisions that are present within the Council and the entire Church. The bishop also read the official recommendation from the Council of Bishops: Having received and considered the extensive work of the Commission on a Way Forward, the Council of Bishops will submit a report to the Special Session of the General Conference of 2019 that includes: • •

All three plans (The Traditionalist Plan, the One Church Plan, and the Connectional Conference Plan) for a way forward considered by the Commission and the Council The Council’s recommendation of the One Church Plan

34


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

A historical narrative of the Council’s discernment process regarding all three plans

Rationale: To invite the church to go deeper into the journey the Council and the Commission have been on, the Council will make all the information considered by the Commission and the Council of Bishops available to the delegates of the General Conference and acknowledge there is support for each of the three plans within the Council. The values of our global church are reflected in all three plans. The majority of the Council recommends the One Church Plan as the best way forward for the United Methodist Church. Prior to the Special General Conference, our Conference will host listening conversations and study groups. The bishop also encouraged prayer every day from 2:23 until 2:26 (which reflects the dates of the Special General Conference). Rev. Johnson ended his report with prayer. Bishop’s Taskforce on Racism & Conference Commission on Religion and Race. Blenda Smith, convener of the Conference Commission on Religion and Race (CORR), explained that the mission of the task force has been to work on reducing racism in our local churches and noted that tragically, the challenge of racism remains very real. She introduced the video “Racism is Real.” Following the video, the Rev. David Wickins spoke of how he as a white pastor felt convicted to do something about systematic racism. “Evil exists when good people do nothing to stop it. Doing nothing isn’t enough,” explained Rev. Winkins. “I hope you will hear the call, however great or small to ‘not do nothing.’” The Rev. Teressa Sivers, pastor at the Ithaca: Saint Paul’s UMC, explained the Imagine No Racism small group process and noted that 100 small groups have been formed. She also introduced the Regional Coordinators who will oversee the small group process: Brennon Thompson, the Rev. Nancy O’Connor– Raca, Aaron Moore, and the Rev. Jeff Hodge. Shirley Readdean ended the report with prayer. Committee on the Episcopacy The Rev. Bill Allen, chair of the Committee on the Episcopacy, introduced the committee and gave an update on the committee’s activities. He also thanked Bishop Webb and his family for their ministry in our midst, offered gifts to the bishop, and prayed for him and his family. The bishop thanked everyone for the blessing Upper New York is to him, Jodi, and to his family. Secretary Hodge made several announcements prior to adjournment for dinner. The Rev. Patience Kisakye, pastor of the Lyons and Newark: Emmanuel UMCs, led the dinner prayer. Memorial Service – 7:30 p.m. The Memorial Service began with a reading from Isaiah 25, followed by the Processional Hymn, Sing with All the Saints in Glory. Bishop Webb spoke of words of welcome and comfort to the families, followed by an anthem by the Korean Clergy Choir. Guest Preacher the Rev. Corey Turnpenny read John 11:17, 19–27, 32–46 and preached a Sermon titled “Jesus Calls Us Out”. The Sermon was followed by the “Naming of the Saints.” Cabinet members read the names of those who passed since last Annual Conference session and lit a candle for each name. Friends and family members were invited to stand with the reading of each name.

Saturday, June 2, 2018 Morning Plenary – 9:15 a.m. Bishop Webb opened the morning plenary session. Daily Wrap Krystal Cole, laity, and Ian Urriola, laity, hosted the “Daily Wrap” video, highlighting the events of the previous day. Monitoring Report Tom Blake, laity, representing Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) and Blenda Smith, laity, representing Commission on Religion and Race, provided the monitoring data from Friday’s session. CF&A Report and 2019 Budget Bishop Webb introduced the Rev. Susan Ranous, chair of the Committee on Finance & Administration, to give the Committee’s report and present the budget. Prior to presenting the 2019 budget, Rev. Ranous thanked the Conference for making it possible to pay 100% of General Church apportionments for the second year in a row. The 2019 Ministry Budget was brought forward for approval. Two clarifying questions were answered by Rev. Ranous. The Rev. Beckie Sweet, pastor at the Kenmore UMC, speaking on behalf of Kevin Nelson, laity, whose voice was weakened due to illness, asked whether money was set aside for visitors and alternate delegates to General Conference, and then moved to request a declaratory decision to create funds to aid non–delegates attending General Conference. It was ruled out of order by the bishop. Rev. Ranous, answered several clarifying questions. Gabriella Wilson, laity, prayed over the vote. The Budget was adopted. Request for Declaratory Decision Kevin Nelson, laity, Home Missioner, moved to request a declaratory decision by the Judicial Council on the decision by General Conference to require visitors to pay registration fees and acquire badges to gain entry to the plenary hall for the 2019 Special Session of General Conference to be held February 23–26, 2019 in St. Louis, Mo. It received a second. Rev. Sweet speaking to the motion, on behalf of Kevin Nelson, whose voice was weakened by illness, provided the following rationale: “The impact of such multi hundred–dollar registration fees, in combination with the mandatory payment of them in order to acquire a badge that would permit entry into the plenary hall, create a scenario where only economically affluent United Methodists would be able to observe in person and participate in the conversations that take place inside the plenary hall, while less affluent United Methodists would be restricted to staying outside the room and relegated to watching remotely via an online video feed. Such actions would create a highly consequential and morally repugnant economic barrier to the full participation of observers at General Conference.” Rev. Sweet cited paragraphs 164b regarding political responsibility and 164d regarding freedom of information. Rev. Sweet, reading on behalf of Nelson, noted that paragraph 6129 of The Book of

46


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

Resolutions characterizes “transparency and accountability” as pillars of a democratic system; and that paragraph 722 of the 2016 Book of Discipline states, in part “in the spirit of openness and accountability, all meetings of the councils, boards, agencies, commissions and committees of the Church at all levels of the church … shall be open.” And, “while it is expected that the General Conference, the Judicial Council, and the Council of Bishops will live by the spirit of this paragraph, each of these bodies is governed by its own rules and procedure.” Nelson, through Rev. Sweet, requested a declaratory decision regarding the following questions: 1.) Does any part of paragraph 722 and/or any part of the general Conference Rules of Order permit the requirement of mandatory registration fees for all non–delegates attending and observing the 2019 special session of General Conference? 2.) Do mandatory registration fees for visitors/observers function as unlawful economic obstruction to the openness and accountability function of being physically present to observe a General Conference and participate in the democratic processes of such a conference through the conversations that take place within the plenary hall, including those outside of the bar and/or outside of convened sessions? 3.) Do mandatory registration fees for attendees of a General Conference constitute an unconstitutional violation of Division One, Article IV, paragraph 4 of the Constitution of The United Methodist Church, by establishing a de facto barrier to full inclusion based on economic condition? 4.) Pursuant to paragraph 722, is the Commission on General Conference authorized to adopt a policy that would have the impact of infringing upon and substantially curtailing the spirit of paragraph 722, absent a process to amend the General Conference Rules of Order? 5.) Absent any explicit authority in either the Discipline or the policies and procedures of General Conference, is the Commission on General Conference empowered to make a decision to establish registration fees for attendance of General Conference, which would have the effect of curtailing the observation and participation of visitors or other attendees? Bishop Webb noted that a one–fifth vote of the body is required to request a declaratory decision. There were several clarifying questions. The request for a declaratory decision was supported. Conference Secretary Hodge will forward the request and supporting documentation to the Judicial Council. Future Budgets The Rev. Stephen Cady, pastor of the Rochester: Asbury First UMC, made a motion that all future budgets contain prior years actual numbers and the number of churches that have paid ministry apportionments in partial, full, or not at all. The Rev. Susan Ranous, chair of CF&A, said that the committee would provide that information in the future, and that a motion was not necessary. Rev. Cady withdrew the motion. Petitions and Resolutions Bishop Webb introduced Suzanne Allen, chair of the Committee on Petitions and Resolutions, to continue the presentation of Petitions and Resolutions.

Report of the Board of Trustees The 2018 Report of the Board of Trustees was adopted. Board of Trustees: Election of Trustees The following trustees were elected to the Class of 2022 by paper ballot: Class of 2022 – John Frary, laity, 1,013 yes, 16 no Joyce Miller, laity, 1,028 yes, 10 no Nathan Trost, laity, 1027 yes, 10 no UNY2018 SHRec.1; – Recommendation from Social Holiness Team – Welcoming the Stranger Whereas, “In the New Testament, Jesus’ life begins as a refugee to Africa when he and his family flee to Egypt to escape Herod’s infanticide (Matthew 2:13–18). Jesus fully identifies with the sojourner to the point that to welcome the sojourner is to welcome Jesus himself (Matthew 25:35). Jesus teaches us to show special concern for the poor and oppressed who come to our land seeking survival and peace;” and Whereas, with the exception of the Native Americans among us, everyone who lives in upstate New York is an immigrant to this nation or a descendent of immigrants; and Whereas, especially in communities along major highways and waterways, immigrants and refugees continue to move into upstate New York, many with immigration documents but some undocumented, seeking employment, education, security, and a better life for themselves and their families; and Whereas, the upstate economy has been renewed and revitalized by the influx of new neighbors who are immigrants and refugees; and Whereas, throughout upstate New York there are not for profit organizations whose mission it is to assist immigrants, refugees, and asylum–seekers, as well as the undocumented and those seeking sanctuary. Therefore, be it resolved that the members and congregations of the Upper New York Conference rededicate themselves to following Jesus in welcoming the stranger in our midst by: a. Contacting our Congressional representatives to urge them to support legislation that will uphold the civil and human rights of all migrants in the United States and will provide an opportunity to attain legal status for all undocumented migrants currently in the United States, as well as for those arriving in the future. b. Denouncing the rise of xenophobic, racist, and violent reactions against migrants in the United States, and support all efforts to build relationships among people, instead of building walls between diverse ethnicities and cultures, and insisting that law enforcement grant to all the protections afforded by the Bill of Rights; c. Welcoming newly arriving immigrants into our congregations and communities, seeking to walk alongside them, learning from them and valuing their gifts. d. Partnering with local nonprofits and government agencies which are working to provide assistance to immigrants and refugees. e. Prayerfully considering the call to become sanctuary churches.

Recommendation from the Accessibility Committee – Disability Awareness Weekend Whereas, the 2016 Book of Discipline (¶265.4) requires the Conference to set the date for the observance of Disability Awareness Weekend; and Whereas, Disability Awareness Sunday, as defined by the 2016 Book of Discipline: “calls the Church to celebrate the gifts and graces of persons with disabilities and calls the church and society to full inclusion of persons with disabilities in the community;” and Whereas, there may be an offering received for the purpose to be used for the Annual Conference for ministries as defined by the Discipline: “to promote the work of creating architectural and attitudinal accessibility in local churches.” Therefore, be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference establish February 1–7, or another weekend chosen by the local church, to be designated as Disability Awareness Weekend and that a special offering may be received in local churches for promotion of awareness issues as well as ministries that provide opportunities for fuller inclusion of people with disabilities. There are materials available at UMDisability.org website to assist churches in the celebration of this special Sunday; and Be it further resolved that churches who have submitted a collection in support of accessibility Sunday may be eligible for a grant if they have need for funding of projects to make their community more accessible to all people. UNY2018:SHRec.2 – Recommendation from the Task Force on Peace with Justice in Palestine/Israel – Advocating for the Rights of Children Living Under Israeli Occupation Whereas, Israel’s military occupation of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip is now more than 50 years; and Whereas, Israel is the only country in the world that systematically prosecutes children in military courts, with approximately 500 to 700 children entering the Israeli military detention system in any given year; and Whereas, in a 2013 landmark study of this detention system, the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) reported that ill–treatment of children in the Israeli military detention system is “widespread, systematic, and institutionalized throughout the process;” and Whereas, despite sustained engagement by UNICEF and repeated calls to end night arrests and ill– treatment and torture of Palestinian children in Israeli military detention, Israeli authorities have persistently failed to implement practical changes to stop violence against child detainees; and Whereas, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child has been ratified by every single member of the United Nations except the United States, and ratification by the United States could also underscore our nation’s responsibility for humane treatment of all children; and Whereas, on November 14, 2017, legislation was introduced in the United States Congress entitled Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act (H.R. 4391), which

56


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

declares that “Peace can only be achieved by respecting human rights, especially the rights of children,” and seeks to prevent the United States from financing Israel’s military detention, interrogation, abuse, and ill–treatment of Palestinian children; and Therefore be it resolved, that the Upper New York Conference calls on the United States Senate, the House of Representatives, the President, the Vice President, and the Secretary of State to join with 196 other nations in ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child so as to bring stronger international pressure to bear on Israel to comply with the Convention’s provisions, particularly those governing the treatment of children held in detention. Therefore, be it further resolved that the Upper New York Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church calls on the government of the United States to adhere to its own established law – in this case, the U.S. Foreign Assistance Act – by withholding military assistance from the State of Israel that would support financing Israel’s military detention, interrogation, abuse, and ill–treatment of Palestinian children; and Therefore, be it further resolved that the members of this 2018 Annual Conference session take action by: 1) Relaying these two calls to their congregations; 2) Writing their members of Congress, as well as the President, Vice President, and Secretary of State, urging them to respond to our calls; and 3) Encouraging and facilitating their congregations to do the same. UNY2018.SHRec.3 – Recommendation from the Social Holiness Committee – Fossil Fuels Whereas, the burning of fossil fuels pumps greenhouse gases into the atmosphere which retain heat and accelerate global warming; and Whereas, global warming, in turn, is making severe weather events more common and more powerful; and Whereas, warmer oceans add energy to storms and result in higher winds, creating warmer winds which hold more moisture and result in greater precipitation; and higher sea levels result in greater storm surges and flooding; and Whereas, the United States has just experienced a flurry of such storms in Houston, South Florida, and Puerto Rico; and Asia has experienced enhanced weather in India, Bangladesh, and Nepal causing major loss of life; and Whereas, we should not be making money from an industry that is causing planetary destruction and profound human suffering, including loss of life; and Whereas, virtually every developed country in the world has pledged to replace fossil fuel with renewable energy sources; and Whereas, it is inevitable that the value of fossil fuel investments will decline, and Whereas, it makes no sense to be supporting a public policy designed to shrink the fossil fuel industry while at the same time continuing to invest in the industry; and

57


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

Whereas, divestment is a powerful moral statement against the big oil, gas, and coal companies, which generate huge profits and overly influence public policy, even while the planet is quickly warming towards an uninhabitable state; and Whereas, divestment communicates the urgent need to leave untapped 80% of the known carbon reserves and invest in renewable energies capable of meeting humanity’s needs; and Whereas, God's creation and creatures are suffering from climate change caused by the burning of fossil fuels; and Whereas, there is a Biblical call to love and care for creation in keeping with God's covenant with all things alive and yet to be born (Genesis 9); and Whereas, it is imperative that the Upper New York Conference withdraw its support from companies that profit from destroying creation. Therefore, be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference support the New York State Council of Churches’ push for the NYS Divest program in support of divestment legislation before the NYS Legislature, which calls for divesting from fossil fuels in the NYS pension funds; and Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Conference and its districts divest in all funds invested in fossil fuels and reinvest in renewable energy investments wherever possible; and Be it further resolved that that individual churches and their members prayerfully consider fossil fuel divestment of their funds, as well. UNY2018.SHRec.4 – Recommendation from the Task Force for Immigration –– Radical Hospitality Whereas, the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church has been repeatedly called to practice the art of “radical hospitality” to better make disciples for Jesus Christ; and Whereas, we are called by in Leviticus 19:33–34 “when a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do them wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourn s with you as the native among you, and you shall love them as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God;” and Whereas, the author of Hebrews calls us to practice hospitality with strangers in Hebrews 13:1–2 “Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unaware;” and Whereas, the author of 3 John wrote in the fifth verse “It is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers and sister strangers as they are;” and Whereas, in the words of Jesus found 8 Matthew 25:35 “For I was hungry, and you gave me food, I was thirsty, and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me;” and Whereas, to one can better practice the art of “radical hospitality” by speaking the native language of the stranger and/or the sojourner.

58


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

Therefore be it resolved that to better practice the art of “radical hospitality” and to better practice what the scripture of the Old and New Testaments call us to and the life style and teachings of Jesus Christ call us to; that when our districts and/or our Conference is that our district/conference office shall keep a database of multilingual people who they are and the languages they speak as a resource. So that the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church may be even more faithful to God’s call to make disciples of all persons of all origins and all ethnicities. UNY2018.SHRec.5 – Recommendation from the Social Holiness Team – Specify Peace and Justice Coordinator Whereas, the 2016 Book of Discipline, ¶629 states that each Conference shall “name a Conference Peace with Justice Coordinator who will be responsible for administering the Conference Peace with Justice Special Sunday Offering receipts and for coordinating peace and justice ministries;” and Whereas, the work of the Conference Peace with Justice Coordinator is to act as primary coordinator of Peace with Justice resources, interpretation, and advocacy. The coordinator links the local churches in the annual conference with the General Board of Church and Society Peace with Justice Program; and Whereas, the UNY Conference rules do not specify that the Peace with Justice Coordinator, if a lay person, shall be a delegate to the Annual Conference sessions. Therefore, be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference Rules Committee shall include Peace with Justice Coordinator (if a layperson) to the list of equalizing lay members based on position of leadership (Policies and Resolutions, Appendix II, V, C of 2017 UNY Conference Journal). This change would take effect beginning with the next Annual Conference Session and remain in any future iteration of our rules to show our commitment to justice issues. Nominations & Leadership Development Report See page 8 – Vol. II 2019 Revenue Shares Budget Be it Resolved that the 2019 Revenue Shares Budget totaling $9,975,000. Request for Declaratory Decision Be it Resolved that the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church requests a Declaratory Decision by the Judicial Council on the decision by General Conference to require visitors to pay registration fees and acquire badges to gain entry to the plenary hall for the 2019 Special Session of General Conference to be held February 23–26, 2019 in St. Louis, MO. UNY2018.2 – On Sexual Abuse, Harassment, and Misconduct Whereas, widespread naming of sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct have become empowered this past year through the #MeToo campaign. More so than at any time in the past, victims have been heard and believed, and offenders have experienced consequences for their actions. The public outrage has been swift and strong, even though the long lists of offenders have been numerically and emotionally overwhelming. Time has now named its Person of the Year as the “silence breakers,” honoring those who have been speaking out. While this may seem new to some, sexual misconduct reporting has been going on for a long time; and

59


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

Whereas, in The United Methodist Church (UMC), the term in general use is “sexual misconduct.” A limitation of the definitions the United Methodist Church offers is that they focus primarily on interactions from clergypersons directed at laypersons, though they attempt to cover a wide range of such relationships. Sometimes the harassment comes from the other direction––laypersons sexually harassing clergy, especially female clergy––and sometimes it is related to the abuse of power perpetuated among bishops, district superintendents, and clergy, especially but not exclusively as experienced by females in these roles. A broader definition in use in society today, and of more familiarity to lay people, comes from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC); and Whereas, the EEOC states about sexual harassment, “Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature, however, and can include offensive remarks about a person’s sex. For example, it is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general. Both victim and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex;” and Whereas, RAINN, the Rape Abuse and Incest National Network is the nation’s largest anti–sexual violence organization. They go further than the EEOC, adding, “Sexual harassment does not always have to be specifically about sexual behavior or directed at a specific person. For example, negative comments about women as a group may be a form of sexual harassment. Sexual harassment interferes with your performance by threatening your job security or becoming an obstacle to effective work. Although sexual harassment laws do not usually cover teasing or offhand comments, these behaviors can also be upsetting and have a negative emotional impact. Sexual harassment can occur in a variety of circumstances. The harasser can identify with any gender and have any relationship to the victim, including a being a direct manager, indirect supervisor, co–worker, teacher, peer, or colleague. Some forms of sexual harassment include: • Making conditions of employment dependent on sexual favors • Physical acts of sexual assault • Requests for sexual favors • Verbal harassment of a sexual nature • Unwanted touching or physical contact • Unwelcome sexual advances Sexual harassment can occur in the workplace or learning environment, like a school or university. It can happen in many different scenarios, including after–hours conversations, exchanges in the hallways, and non–office settings of employees or peers;” and Whereas, the United Methodist Church (UMC) has strong Social Principles on “Women and Men” (161.F), sexual abuse (161.I), and sexual harassment (161.J). In sum, we understand gender diversity as a gift from God, reject the idea “that one gender is superior to another” and that “members of one gender may receive love, power, and esteem only at the expense of another.” We further stridently condemn sexual abuse and sexual harassment, lifting up our values and our understandings of God’s will for God’s people that speak to the damage inflicted by sexual abuse and sexual harassment; and Whereas, data reflected in the General Commission on the Status and Role of Women’s recent update to their study on sexual misconduct in The UMC, as well anecdotes shared in countless private conversations

60


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

all over this Conference and across the Church, clearly demonstrates that we utterly fail to live up to these values; and Whereas, statements are not adequate for confronting sexual abuse, harassment, and misogyny. Neither are after–the–fact processes for attempting to address sexual misconduct after it has already taken place. Efforts at changing behavior before sins are committed are needed. Training related to sexual abuse, sexual harassment, appropriate boundaries, and rejecting misogyny are needed. Therefore, be it resolved that clergy and laity within the UNYAC are in need of further training in how to stop and prevent others from engaging in sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and misogyny, as well as how to create appropriate boundaries/relationships between women and men; and Be it further resolved that such training needs to include components that address the following matters: • Sexual assault • Sexual harassment with components focused on clergy colleagues and clergy/lay interactions (including the often overlooked dynamic of laity harassing clergy, especially but not exclusively female clergy) • Inappropriate comments on physical appearance or clothing, inappropriate comments about fertility or sex life, other forms of inappropriate language • Speaking up (especially from bystanders) about inappropriate behavior • Physical touch • Equality but not same–ness between men and women • Micro–aggressions • Power dynamics between men and women (including sensitivity to the way men and women participate in and are responded to in meeting settings) • The grossly under–weighted need to believe, rather than dismiss, accusers (while not sacrificing the fair process rights of the accused) • The power dynamics involved, and specific sensitivities needed in men in positions of power receiving and processing complaints from women in subordinate positions • Addressing sexual harassment when witnessing it; and Be it further resolved that such training shall be mandatory for the bishop, all members of the extended cabinet, all executive/professional level conference staff, the conference lay leader, associate lay leader, conference secretary, conference chancellor, all persons serving under appointment, and all persons serving on the Conference Leadership Team, the Board of Ordained Ministry, on each District Committee on Ordained Ministry, on each District Leadership Team, the Conference Council on Finance and Administration, the Conference Trustees, the Conference Committee on the Episcopacy, all church employees within the annual conference, and members serving on committees that may touch on matters addressed in these trainings, including the Safe Sanctuaries Committee, the Commission on the Status and Role of Women, the Social Holiness Team, and the Committee on Investigation. As a first step in implementing such training, the General Commission on the Status and Role of Women (GCSRW) offers an existing training program called Do No Harm. This is a training offered every two years with an agenda addressing integrity and healthy boundaries, advocacy, administrative/judicatory response, and response teams to sexual ethics violations; conferences are expected to send at least four

61


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

persons to attend. The upcoming session of their Do No Harm training is being held Oct.11-13,2018, in San Antonio. Since it is typically an–every–other year training, it is not anticipated to be held again until 2020. With this train–the–trainer event, the UNYAC will be better equipped to develop a comprehensive plan for ongoing trainings designed to strengthen the Church’s commitment to both the prevention of sexual misconduct and the response to sexual misconduct, always offering healing for all parties and holding persons accountable for violations. At least four members of a conference are needed to attend to cover all four agenda tracks. Because these trainings are so important, and the content is so sensitive, it is critical that persons named to this team must have personal experience and/or professional expertise in the topics being addressed. Therefore, Bishop Webb shall select from the body, individuals to attend. Be it further resolved, GCSRW shall be invited to provide a sexual ethics training in 2019 addressing the matters identified in this resolution. Such trainings are provided at no additional cost to the Annual Conference because they are already covered through our existing general church ministry shares. This training will be mandatory for the above–named groups. COSROW shall also examine how to most effectively make this training available to lay leadership, specifically including other members of conference committees, leadership bodies, church councils, SPRC’s, finance committees, and lay leadership/nominating committees. UNY2018.4 – Rules and Agenda Changes for the Enhanced Order of Floor Discussion and Debate on Motions before the UNY Annual Conference Pastor Merrill Bender, of the County Line UMC, presented the resolution, which seeks to enhance the order of floor discussion and elevate debate. Sam Smith, laity, moved to refer the petition to the Rules Committee. Several spoke in favor of the motion to refer. The referral was supported. UNY2018.5 –– Lead Resolution Whereas, in 2016 the Upper New York Conference had 898 churches and it is estimated that 34.9% of U.S. homes have lead–based paint somewhere in the building, of which 21.9% of all U.S. homes have one or more lead–based paint hazards (2011 American Healthy Homes Survey by HUD); and Whereas, homes and facilities built before 1978 (when lead–based paints were banned) likely contain lead–based paint (CDC’s Prevent Childhood Lead Poisoning) and when paint peels and cracks it makes lead dust that children can be poisoned by when they swallow or breathe in lead dust; and Whereas, one in five Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) cases are attributed to lead exposure (American Academy of Pediatrics); and Whereas, the Upper New York Conference believes that congregations and clergy benefit when clergy and their families live in buildings which are safe (UNY Clergy Housing Policy); and Whereas, the annual inspection of the church parsonage mandates the immediate resolution of parsonage problems affecting the health of the pastor or pastor’s family (¶ 258.16) and since 1992 federal law has required landlords to disclose any known lead–based paint hazards; and

62


2018 Upper New York Annual Conference Journal IV. Daily Proceedings

Whereas, disciples of the One who came that we might have life and have it abundantly, our first and highest priority regarding health must be the promotion of the circumstances in which health thrives (Book of Resolutions: 3202 Health and Wholeness) and Global Health is one of the United Methodist Church’s current areas of focus; and Whereas, the United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice and we affirm the importance of preventive health care, health education, environmental and occupational safety … and secure housing … and sees health care as a basic human right (¶ 162.V). Therefore be it resolved that as federal law requires landlords to disclose any known information concerning the presence of lead–based paint or lead–based paint hazards in the home or building built before 1978, The UNY’s annual Parsonage Report be revised in 2018 to reflect a church’s last date of lead testing and the question “Is lead present?” with boxes to check “yes” or “no” and “If yes, list locations of lead,” and Be it further resolved that testing for lead in both paint and water be conducted every five years; and Be it further resolved that the Upper New York Conference determine the cost of “Lead–based Paint Liability Insurance Coverage” through Church Mutual and at the appropriate time, but no later than Annual Conference 2019, an offer for the inclusion of this coverage to UNY’s insurance policy for local churches be shared with the Conference-at–large. UNY2018.7 – Parental Leave Whereas, ¶355 of the 2016 Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church lays out a process for entering parental leave that existed prior to the implementation of the NYS Paid Family Leave Act; and Whereas, the NYS Paid Family Leave Act applies to individuals as they bond with a child (whether they are born, adopted, or fostered), care for an infirm family member, or take extra time to assist family members when a loved one is deployed through the armed forces; and Whereas, the process found in ¶355 of the 2016 Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church only applies to individuals who have brought a child into the family through birth or adoption, but not fostering; and Whereas, this is the first year where there are differing rules and regulations in place for the UMC’s Parental Leave Process and the NYS Paid Family Leave Act in overlapping areas of concern; and Whereas, a lack of one clear resource and process can cause disruption and frustration in the lives of clergy and laity in local congregations and community. Therefore, be it resolved that a member of the Cabinet, a member of the Committee or Equitable Compensation, the Benefits Office of the Upper New York Annual Conference, and a member of the Board of Ordained Ministry’s Executive Committee collaborate with the Conference Communications department to create a readily available resource which can be distributed and easily accessed through the Conference Website by laity, clergy, and Conference staff. The resource to be provided will provide education on Parental Leave requirements as outlined in ¶355 of the 2016 Book of Discipline, education on the NYS Paid Family Leave Act, how they differ, and how they might be used in conjunction to best serve our churches.

UNY2018.8 – Funding Ecumenical Inter–Faith Leaders Whereas, for Christians, “God is revealed in Christ, but Christ is revealed in Jesus,” and “the norm of the Christian Bible is the biblical Christ and the norm of the biblical Christ is the historical Jesus;” [John Dominic Crossan, How to Read the Bible ... (central theme); and Whereas, Jesus, lived all his life in Galilee's submission to the Roman empire and in close proximity of the metropolitan area of Sepphorus (Capital of Galilee), making him intimately aware of the reality of other faith perspectives; and Whereas, Jesus employed people of other faiths in his parables as examples of people of trust in God's present grace, not binding them with any suggestion that they could only engage the Eternal through him; and Whereas, Francis of Assisi was named the saint of the poor, the environment and animals, and lived a life of evangelical poverty, humility and peacemaking; but, he did not "buy the pope's call to war but goes instead to embrace the Muslims," meeting the presiding Sultan in Egypt and affirming with the Sultan that their way of being together, the attitude of mutual respect and understanding, as well as their belief in one God, prayer, kindness to the poor, and peace appealed to both, thereby demonstrated that interreligious dialogue with people who believe differently is the healing alternative to hostility and worse in the name of God; and Whereas, the period following the Arabic invasion and preceding the Christian Reconquest in 1492 offers a unique glimpse into cultural cohabitation in Spain … a time of peaceful coexistence and cooperation, with mutual religious and cultural exchanges that benefited Muslims, Jews, and Christians alike, while superimposing over, nor demeaning any, of these faiths in relation to the others; and Whereas, though a person of his times, John Wesley studied at Oxford University, learned Hebrew and Old Testament, Greek and New Testament, Arabic and the Qu'ran, and provided a foundation for Interfaith engagement through the understandings of some of his broad themes, including perfect love and true religion, offering a practical divinity grounded in theology and useful in daily living; and Whereas, when the Christian Church succumbed to bribes by the Hitler and Mussolini regimes, supporting their rise to power and aligning the church with state power and not the Jesus–like God of peace, Dietrich Bonhoeffer determined that God is “Lord of the World,” not just of religion and not of one particular religious group over another, and worked with leaders of many faiths to express grace of healing in a war torn world; and Whereas, Mahatma Gandhi [who deeply respected Jesus and employed Jesus' ethical and moral teachings as essential ingredients of his own faith] said: “Religions are different roads converging upon the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads, so long as we reach the same goal;” and Whereas, Osmid Sofi, director of Duke University's Islamic Center, says: “Real interfaith work assumes that we have something to teach one another, something to learn from one another. We have to be open to the possibility of learning from, and learning with, one another;” and

Whereas, the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry supports increased interfaith dialogue among United Methodist campuses, providing students with the education and skills they need to be leaders in a religiously pluralistic world, on and off campus; and Whereas, increasingly today our communities are composed of God's “beloved” children from all over the world and a significant variety of faiths; and Whereas, the Capital District of New York has a long, practically helpful and deeply engaging history of interfaith engagement, whereby those of differing faiths not only “coexist” but “claim each other as sisters and brothers.” Therefore, be it resolved that the Upper New York Conference, at least every fourth year, [beginning the very first year when there is not yet a major presenter already engaged] provide a major presentation [or focus on sacred texts by a significant leader of a differing non–Christian faith during conference sessions, including settings for total and smaller group dialogue with the presenter; and Be it further resolved that time is made available during each year's annual conference gathered sessions for brief greetings by leaders of differing Christian perspectives and of differing faiths. UNY2018.10 – Non–Binary Gender Resolution Whereas, the Constitution of the United Methodist Church, Article 4, states that: “The United Methodist Church acknowledges that all persons are of sacred worth. All persons without regard to race, color, national origin, status, or economic condition, shall be eligible to attend its worship services, participate in its programs, receive the sacraments, upon baptism be admitted as baptized members, and upon taking vows declaring the Christian faith, become professing members in any local church in the connection. In The United Methodist Church no conference or other organizational unit of the Church shall be structured so as to exclude any member or any constituent body of the Church because of race, color, national origin, status or economic condition” (2016 BOD, par. 4); and Whereas, the Book of Discipline further states that, “The membership of a local United Methodist church shall include all people who have been baptized and all people who have professed their faith ... 3. For statistical purposes, church membership is equated to the number of people listed on the roll of professing members” (2016 BOD, par. 215); and Whereas, despite the lack of a requirement of a binary gender identity in order to profess membership in the UMC, and regardless of the instructions to, “report for each member the gender with which she or he identifies,” the statistical tables in the Ezra Data Management System for the Upper New York Annual Conference require the reporting of membership by gender based on a binary distinction between male and female; and, Whereas, the General Council on Finance and Administration has a process in place to allow conferences to add columns to the statistical reports for their own situations, which could provide a way for congregations to report members with a non–binary gender identity. Therefore, be it resolved, that the Upper New York Annual Conference Statistician and the Director of Connectional Ministries will work with the General Council on Finance and Administration to add a “Non– binary” column to the membership gender section of the statistical tables in order to allow the reporting of members who do not identify as male or female, beginning with the 2018 statistical report.

developed unique programs for middle school students in a building that housed grades 6-12. For the next 16 years, Bruce served as the Principal of Connor Middle School on Grand Island. There, he led the school into the next century and was instrumental in Connor Middle School being named one of the top 10 middle schools in Western New York.

He became a certified lay speaker and was able to help when needed. He also served on many committees within the church. Bruce and his wife, Jeanette, led the youth group. One of the many highlights of their time with the youth was when they were able to take the group to the UM Youth Conference in North Carolina. The many ways he served the church community helped Bruce to find that he was being led to serve the Lord by seeking a theology degree and ultimately becoming a pastor. After retiring from education, Bruce began studying theology at United Theological Seminary in Ohio. He was appointed as a local licensed pastor to Colden UMC in June of 2013. There, he served the Colden church and community from 2013-2016. One of his favorite community services was to work at the Bread of Life Outreach Center in Colden. There he served on the board, as well as worked weekly with the program. Unfortunately, Bruce became ill and unable to pastor in 2016. Though he wanted to return to the ministry, he was unable to.

Carol Coltrain Carol Coltrain, 75, of State Route 145 was welcomed home to Heaven on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018 from Highland Hospital in Rochester. Carol was born to Virginia (George) and Robert Carl Van Keuren on Nov. 24, 1942, in Margaretville, where she grew up until the age of 12, befriending a beautiful senior citizen down the street, called simply, “Mate.” Mate’s friendship and kindness planted a seed of love for seniors in Carol’s heart that would grow beyond anyone’s knowing. When work and better prospects brought her father to Middleburgh, the family would follow a year later, eventually settling on Route 145 between two elderly couples, the Engles and the Bohringers. Carol spent many happy hours between them, listening and learning, as she had with Mate, that age simply tells how long a person has been around, it does not define us or what we are capable of doing, leading her to believe that to remain enthusiastic is to remain forever young. Carol graduated from Middleburgh Central School in 1961 and eventually enrolled in the Gorham School of Beauty in Schenectady. In 1964, she opened Carol’s Trim N’ Tress on Main Street in Middleburgh. Carol worked tirelessly to beautify the community she loved, not only in hairdressing, but also in time and talent. She gave everything of herself, physically and artistically, involved with many organizations and activities through the years. Carol’s passion for seniors rivaled her passion for the community and in 1969 she formed the Middleburgh Golden Age Club. Monthly club meetings, dinners, volunteer activities, yearly Vintage Vaudeville shows, and bus tours would follow for decades. The greatest bus tour of all was the one that Wade Tours driver Joseph Coltrain drove. A spark was lit between Carol and Joe and after just six months they were married on March 10, 1979, spending 36 beautiful years together until his death in 2015. It was also in 1979 that Carol, after several years of lay-preaching and study at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, was assigned to the Huntersland United Methodist Church. With Heaven sent love, devotion, and compassion, it became “The Little Church Of Love.” Huntersland United Methodist Church has become

synonymous with Carol’s name, her quiet style of sharing God’s love, ministry and touching people’s hearts far beyond the walls of the church. As Pastor, Carol touched lives and left her print on countless hearts, marrying, baptizing, and sharing love and peace with grieving families. Her gift of love to others shone brightest through her efforts, organizing UMCOR volunteer teams, following Hurricane Irene in 2011, rebuilding lives, homes, and the community she cherished. She continued beautifying the ladies of the community until 1991, when she closed her shop and went to work at the Schoharie County Office for the Aging. Working with her friend and former hairdressing customer, Ethel Benninger, Carol ambitiously rose through the ranks and eventually served as director of the office, until retiring. Carol was active with the Middleburgh Rotary Club, was bestowed with many accolades, including being honored as a T.J. Star, she sat on a multitude of boards through the years, shared her beautiful gifts of painting, drawing, penning poetry, song lyrics, playing piano, organ, and accordion, and still found time to be a pastor, wife and a mom. Her final gift was working beside her son, encouraging and supporting his purchase of the former Palmer & Shaylor Funeral Home in Middleburgh, proudly watching the next generation continue her lifelong dream of service and ministry to her community. The multitude of family and friends waiting to welcome her into Heaven will be led by her beloved Joe, her angels and soulmates, Jean Kossmann and “Sudie” Schaeffer, who helped strengthen her faith and shape her life into one of compassionate service and a multitude of family and friends to whom she’s said “goodbye for now.” Holding Carol’s love the closest are her son: Matthew Coltrain of Middleburgh and her brother: Robert (Sally) Van Keuren of Maryville TN, her niece Tammy and her family, many cousins, her church family, her dearest friends of 65 years since third grade: Rose Yung, Betty Curnow and Marjory Rivenburg and an extended family beyond counting.

Margaret Easton On Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, Margaret Easton departed this mortal realm to enter life eternal with her precious Savior Jesus Christ. Margaret was resting in a hospital bed in our living room, surrounded by her family, when she drew her last breath. She knew we were all there for each other and that it was okay for her to go home with her Lord. We know we will see her again, but we will miss her dearly. Margaret lived her entire life caring for others. It was her calling as a servant of Jesus Christ, to tend to the needs of those around her, both family and friends. Margaret had a hard time saying “no” to any request for help, though the family often told her that she needed to learn to say “no.” Her 99 years of life were marked by many forms of service. After college, she worked for the Methodist Board of Missions in New York City. After marriage in 1947, she worked in many capacities as a minister’s
