Works

Religion

A mature Christian can reach a state where the love of God reigns supreme in the heart. No one can be perfect in an absolute way, as God is. But it is possible to be perfect in love to God.

Politics

God seeks to transform relationship with and between people. If politics is about how we choose to live together and to treat one another, there is surely a place for discerning the activity of God in politics.

Views

Small groups inside the Methodist Church should be developed. Thus all members of “societies” could receive support and be challenged in their faith.
