A friend of mine shared with me a conversation he had with his father some years back. My friend had recently began attending a United Methodist Church. He had grownup in another denomination. He said that during this phone conversation, he shared with his dad that he had visited a Methodist church in his neighborhood. His father responded “Aahh the Methodist…..that’s the you’re OK, I’m OK, everybody’s OK church.”

Now, I had never heard our denomination explained in that manner. I do not think that is an accurate or fair description. But I can understand where the stereotype is rooted. Modern Methodist typically gain their motivation for discipleship from the Hope, Joy, and Love that is the message of Christ.
