What I’ve loved about my experiences with UMC churches so far is that each one has been different than the last. Once I spoke to a UMC church plant that met in a theater and was comprised primarily of young adults under 40. Another time, I preached at a UMC church in which most of the members had white hair. Once I shared with a UMC gathering that included a beautiful mix of old and young, homeless and well-to-do, black, white, Asian and Latino.
So you guys are hard to prepare for!
My friend Sam Hodges at the United Methodist Reporter clued me in to a new interview they’ve just published featuring blogging wonder Rachel Held Evans. It’s a great read and you should check it out.
