John Meunier has written some great stuff over the past several weeks. Here are three posts I particularly enjoyed.

Today, he provides a reminder that contemporary Methodism is a church and a movement.

He also has a helpful reaction to the objection that “John Wesley is not our pope.”

Here is one more: A thirst for something more.

I also enjoyed, and wanted to pass on Bishop Will Willimon’s reflections on the importance of small groups in his Annual Conference.

Finally, a book recommendation: I just finished reading D. Bruce Hindmarsh’s The Evangelical Conversion Narrative: Spiritual Autobiography in Early Modern England. If you are interested in early Methodism, this book is well worth the read. It is particularly insightful in shining light on the self-understanding of laity in early Methodism. So, Methodist history buffs, add this to your reading list!
