Bishop Minerva G. Carcano has released the following message to the members of the California-Nevada Conference:
December 11, 2018
Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you for your prayers during this time of discernment in our work with the Glide Foundation. I want to assure you that your conference leadership has worked diligently with me in our efforts to reach a good and faithful place with the leaders of the Glide Foundation Board of Trustees. Unfortunately, it was not possible.
Due to the Glide Foundation’s blatant violation of the trust clauses that govern the life of Glide Memorial United Methodist Church, we have been forced to file a lawsuit against the Glide Foundation. Please know that we do so with heavy hearts, but with the commitment to be good stewards of our United Methodist Churches, ministries, and our witness. Below please find the press release that we are sending forth this day.
