Wesley Bros: Get’cha head in the game

WesleyBros_header_550 WB_006 Click on image to enlarge I once interviewed for a youth-ministry position at a large church.  I asked them how many lay volunteers I would have when I started working.  Without any irony, that chair of the committee said, “That’s why we’d hire YOU, so we don’t have to volunteer any more!”  I did not take that job.

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)
