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)

This was wonderful interview. as a Unitarian Universalist I thought you were talking to me. Loved reflecting again on concept of a church or any organization being a cultural captive. Thank you

Krista Tippett interview the Indigo Girls several months ago and both expressed such Wesleyan and Christian beliefs, despite having members and leaders in their denomination denounce some of their actions and decisions. Yea Dr. Saliers!
