It may have been lost on us who hang out in only Baptist circles that our brothers and sisters in the United Methodist Church (UMC) had a fairly serious dust up last month. For me, I have many friends in the UMC, some of whom are ordained by the church. In fact, it was one of my ordained friends that passively brought my attention to the situation when she posted on her Facebook page a request for people to pray for the situation. Furthermore, my wife and I have United Methodist ties in our past. So, I am always interested about what’s going on with that denomination. Indeed, all of us who are Christians should be concerned with what’s going on in the United Methodist Church because they are our brothers and sisters in Christ and stand as the largest mainline denomination in America.
