Religion

The Covenant is a big challenge to everybody. If God is committed to human race, anyone has to be prepared to accept that as reality and make a commitment in return.

Politics

When peaceful alternatives to resolve the conflict failed, the use of force may be the only option to check aggression or genocide.

The strongest feature of Methodism is that ordinary people play a major role in the running of the Church.
