Be the church—stop fighting about it
No matter what we choose, what church denomination we worship in, whether we call ourselves “United Methodist” or “Global Methodist” or “Baptist” or “Presbyterian,” at the end of the day, we have a far more important title: Child of God. And we have a far bigger responsibility that needs to be claiming our attention: going beyond ourselves to either tell people about Jesus or do good things in Jesus’s name. By Jessica Brodie.
Where there is breath, there is hope
Felecia and I were honored and humbled to receive our assignment from the SEJ Committee on Episcopacy to continue serving in the South Carolina Conference (Columbia Area). We feel blessed to be assigned “back home again” and to continue our efforts to dream God-sized visions with the laity and clergy across this wonderful state. By Bishop L. Jonathan Holston
It’s up to us

A lot of that assumption has to do with the inherent trust we place in such institutions. An editorial by Jessica Brodie.
