United Methodist Survey

Take this survey to help provide agenda for the State of the UMC at the 2008 General Conference.

I rated the two final questions as "Extremely Hopeful" and made these comments:

Please tell me how hopeful you are for the future of your local church.

The "open hearts, open arms" attitude of the UMC has invited persons from other denominations who now wish to exclude those who welcomed them so openly. We embraced their beliefs and wished to share ours but they seem to only be interested in exclusion.

And how hopeful are you for the future of the United Methodist denomination?

I have always been proud to be a Methodist but am becoming less proud as our leaders become too political in the world. Everyone cannot be nurtured in Christian love and faith when judgemental boundaries are established at every turn of the road.
