Series Introduction: Should I stay or should I go?

The world has changed and is changing. The global coronavirus pandemic and disagreements within our denomination are just two of many events that continue to affect United Methodists around the world.

As the church confronts these new realities, it is important for the people called United Methodists to explore and understand who we are, what we believe, and how we live as people of God today and into the future.

To help us think through these issues, the Connectional Table, in cooperation with our general agencies, is hosting a series of discussions with United Methodist theologians and leaders that will help us better understand our faith, our church, ourselves.

Join us live on Facebook

Join us Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. Central Time (3:00 p.m. GMT) on our Facebook page, for a 20-30 minute conversation about who we are as the people of The United Methodist Church.

 

Don't have Facebook? Don't worry!

Following the Facebook event, the videos will be posted here at UMC.org.
