Who Are We: What is Grace?
Part 2 of this three-part study, Who Are We: A Journey from Head to Heart, explores our identity as United Methodists shaped in the Wesleyan spirit. While first and foremost our identity is rooted in our understanding of God and in seeking to follow Jesus, there are uniquely Wesleyan ways of experiencing and expressing that. Methodism began as a spiritual movement, a response of the Holy Spirit to the needs of the world. In the six weeks of this study, we’ll delve into the theology and passion of this movement of faith.
United Methodists are a 12-million member global faith community connected together by the Spirit of God, our Wesleyan theology of grace, a doctrine of personal and social holiness, a holistic understanding of discipleship and reading the Bible, all started by a Holy Spirit-filled movement maker and his brother. Imagine what would happen if all of us reclaimed enough of our shared identity to be able to live and grow together as the church God intends for us to be.
We invite leaders and faith communities in the Peninsula-Delaware Conference to begin Part 2 of Who Are We: A Journey from Head to Heart sometime during the week of May 30th.
