    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

    Through Covenant each individual accepts the relationship with God. It is not about acquiring a relationship with God, but living within the loving relationship that God has already offered.

    Denomination: Methodist

    Views

    Bible is the source of inspirational stories, gospels, letters, hymns, songs, prayers, and poetry that drives wisdom and creativity of all Christians over time and across the world.
