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)

Jon, thanks for the critique. We ARE aware of the issues and we’re working to make things better with tonight’s show. Actually all of the mics are working but we’ve had some issues with getting our guests to stay “on-mic”. We’re still working out the bugs, but it will be better tonight.


Thanks so much, Jay, for your prompt reply. I look forward to episode 3.
