ClymerBishop Wayne K. Clymer died this past Monday (11/25/2013) at the age of 96. Christa Meland, Director of Communications for the Minnesota Annual Conference has the story:

“Over the years, his primary concern was not so much organization or institution, but compassion for people,” said Hagmann, who was also one of Clymer’s longtime friends. “His objective was to instill in the church a sense of compassion for the people within the church and beyond the church. And if the church succeeded in that, everything else would follow.”

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
