What a Difference This Would Make

May 15, 2016

Mark Tooley, a United Methodist, had a piece published in The Wall Street Journal this week. It’s about our General Conference, currently meeting in Portland. The last paragraph says this (highlights mine) —

Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign has cited a common saying in Methodism, attributed in myth to its 18th-century founder, John Wesley, about doing “all the good you can.” A divided denomination has long disagreed about what doing good means personally and societally. But if the church survives its battle in Portland, its expanding global reach might please Rev. Wesley, an evangelist who saw the “world as my parish.”

— Well said, Mark, very well said. Especially your last sentence.

And a large part of that future depends on us. You and me.

My prayers include the Church, and that includes you. Please keep me in yours, too.
