In the spring of 2011, the leadership of Church of the Reconciler, a United Methodist Church in downtown Birmingham, Alabama, was attacked by the leadership of the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church. The clergy and laity who had begun and sustained the ministry of the church were falsely accused of misconduct and removed from offices of ministry by action initiated and coached by the leadership of the North Alabama Conference. This was done in an abusive, arbitrary, and capricious manner, without following the due process of the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church. This web site contains the story of the laity and former lay leadership of the Church of the Reconciler.
