    Politics

    All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

    Religion

    As someone joins the group of people seeking to follow the way of Jesus, it means to respond to God's challenge and begin to share his relationship with God as Father.

    Denomination: Methodist

    Views
