Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions.

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.
