Recommended Reading: William Lawrence book on #MyHope4Methodism
Last week, UM & Global launched a new series, #MyHope4Methodism, that will feature United Methodist scholars and leaders from around the world reflecting on their hope for the future of The United Methodist Church as a global movement within the larger context of worldwide Methodism as a whole. I was pleased to see an announcement from the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry the following day about a new book from Dr. William B. Lawrence entitled "A Methodist Requiem: Words of Hope and Resurrection for the Church." As the press release state, this book is another attempt to proclaim hope for United Methodism, even in a time of great tensions in the church.
