Podcast #26: The Divided United Methodist Church

It is with a measure of sadness that I write about the schism in the United Methodist Church. Fifty years ago, in over a hundred venues around the nation, I toured with a one-man show on John Wesley, appropriately titled, A Heart Strangely Warmed.

It was a joyous season, traveling from seminaries to colleges to denominational conferences to churches large and small, sharing the life and message of this extraordinary Oxford don and itinerant evangelist. How times have changed in fifty years. The United Methodist Church of today has lost its way. As I've expressed it before, "If there were tears in heaven, Wesley would be weeping."
