Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected. Laws in civil society should define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Views

Different kinds of small groups inside the overall Methodist movement should be encouraged to developed, so that both leaders and members of the societies could receive support and challenge in their faith.
