Greetings from Houston, Texas!
A few days ago members of the Wesleyan Methodist family of faith began arriving in this North American city to meet, worship and learn. From the volunteers steering travelers through baggage claim to hotel shuttles, to those distributing registration bags and name tags, it takes a village to bring our village together, and they are doing it well!
Today we begin our World Methodist Conference sessions, Nazarenes and United Methodists, Koreans and Nigerians, hipsters and retirees – what a gift. More than 80 different denominations participate in the World Methodist Council, representing more than 82 million people in 134 countries. What would Susanna Wesley think of her boys’ legacy?
