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

All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

Views

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

Membership

Member of Kiwanis Club, Masons Club, Spring Lake Country Club, Sigma Chi, American Legion.
