    Politics

    God seeks to transform relationship with and between people. If politics is about how we choose to live together and to treat one another, there is surely a place for discerning the activity of God in politics.

    Religion

    The faith should be based on the Bible, but also on reason, tradition, and personal experience.

    Denomination: Methodist

    Views

    Small groups inside the Methodist Church should be developed. Thus all members of “societies” could receive support and be challenged in their faith.
