A Reminder from the U. M. Book of Discipline

Paragraph 2412- Returning to a Previous Appointment

As of the effective date of a new appointment, a pastor shall immediately cease all pastoral counseling & pastoral visitation with members or member families in the previous appointment.

Pastors shall have a clear understanding with former congregations that they will not return to officiate at baptisms, weddings, and funerals; or do pastoral counseling or pastoral visitation in that parish.  Pastors, active or retired, shall respectfully decline to participate in such duties when invited by members of a former pastor.  Declining all such invitations is the responsibility of the previous pastor.  The present pastor, at his or her discretion, may invite the previous pastor to return for pastoral functions.  However, the present pastor should never be under any pressure to invite the previous pastor.
