Works

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote any particular religious belief. It should allow people practice their own religious convictions.

Views

The strong feature of Methodism is the role of local people take for the fabric of church buildings and manses and for the handling of money. They share with ordained ministers the role of setting direction for the churches in a particular area or 'circuit'.
