A Statement from Bishop David Graves

June 28, 2018

At this time, the Alabama-West Florida Conference has received numerous complaints related to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The United Methodist Book of Discipline outlines how these complaints against a lay church member will be handled at the local church and district level in the 2700 paragraphs. While the complaint process has been time consuming for the local church, district and conference, I am diligently praying for all involved over this significant issue. I am grateful for the executive order keeping families together. May God make us all instruments of peace. 

Bishop David W. Graves
