Point of View
Why I Am a United Methodist
“I want to be United Methodist because we aren’t all expected to think alike and that’s OK,” wrote Martha Stokes, director of Inclusivity and Lay Leadership Excellence for the Virginia Annual Conference. “We have our basic affirmations, our foundational beliefs, which we share in common with all Christian communities, but with that comes a broad-mindedness to allow for dissenting opinions and differing values--with the focus of always striving to live as Jesus modeled for us.”
