When I was working on finishing Grace That Grows a couple of years ago, I knew that I wanted to add another piece. That book is largely my attempt to explain the core of Methodism, but I intentionally wrote it in a way that it is not only for Methodists, but is just as applicable to Christians of any tradition. I’m glad that I wrote it that way, but since I did, the part of its message that probably needs some reinforcement is something like:
“Hey Methodists, this is the core of our tradition!
(and you may have been a lifelong Methodist but never even heard of it!)”
So to accomplish that reinforcement, I decided to put together a brief ebook to help make the big ideas of Grace That Grows clearly applicable in any groups which trace their roots through the Wesleys. I think it was a good idea, and like many things I’ve thought were good ideas, I started it and never finished it.
But since our current circumstances seem more conducive than any others in my lifetime to anyone whose ever had a thought about the meaning and purpose of Methodism to try to tell (or shout to) others about it, I thought I’d repurpose the content of the incomplete ebook and try to unpack some of what I said in the post from earlier this week: “In Contrast to What You May Have Heard.”
I hope that this series will go something like this:
