Host a direct action at your Episcopal Office, congregation, or some other strategic location in your annual conference.
In some contexts, it might be best to hold a direct action at the episcopal offices and hand deliver a letter with large numbers of people. In other contexts, the letter to the bishop might be more strategically delivered online and signed by as many people as possible with a direct action organized at a location other than the episcopal office. The purpose of having larger numbers of people on hand is to show our solidarity and overwhelming local opposition to the Traditional Plan, not to be intimidating or threatening to the bishop or to episcopal staff.
Remember, even if the bishop isn’t supportive of our efforts, many of the people in the conference or episcopal offices may be. We know that a majority of the bishops in the U.S. find fault with the Traditional Plan just as much as we do. So, discern what will be the most effective way to share your witness and win allies to the cause of LGBTQ justice and inclusion.
For example, in Alabama-West FL, there is a plan to set up a meeting with the bishop with a large number of attendants. They plan to ask him to do no harm and process no complaints, and to offer to lay lands on him as they pray for God’s guidance. For the Alabama-West FL context and bishop, planners have decided that will be the most effective. What is best for your context?
