It’s a new year, a time when United Methodists across the connection may think about resolutions, goals, a time of transformation.
United Methodists believe our transformation into disciples of Jesus Christ takes time and practice. The goal of this process called sanctification is “universal love filling the heart, and governing the life,” as John Wesley wrote.
We facilitate this transformation alone and in community. We worship with our local church and pray in private. We participate in a global denomination that provides healthcare to those on the other side of the world and we drive our neighbor to the doctor. All of these are ways we participate in God's transformation of us and join God’s work of transforming the world.
How will you participate in God's work of transformation this year?
