Jenny, a young pastor serving in Alaska, has two primary hopes for The United Methodist Church.
The first one:
That we would not split apart at the seams, that we would find a way forward together.
She has no idea what that looks like, but wants to believe that it is possible.
Her second hope is that God would give the denomination ways to communicate our Wesleyan theology [of putting faith and love into action, and God's grace beling available to all].
And if we can continue to experiment and be willing to fail, and be willing to risk with that, then I think we have a future.
She's seen over and over with young adults and people of all ages, that there is something compelling about being United Methodist. But how do we communicate it in fresh, new ways? That is our task.
