The United Methodist Church is a missionary, connectional church serving as a means of God’s saving grace. These words describe the “extreme center,” where, as United Methodists, we recognize that Christians can have differing opinions.
We are not the “dead center,” believing everything and so believing nothing. We simply recognize that God is larger than single issue and that Christian people can disagree.
In “The Extreme Center: Living as United Methodists Today,” Kansas Area Bishop Scott Jones looks at what it means to be a Christian and a United Methodist today. The DVD is a collection Jones’ teachings.
Six 15-minute segments focus on United Methodism, the means of salvation, mission, social justice, evangelism and religion in post-modern American culture. The videos are accompanied by a downloadable study guide for use with small groups within any size congregation.
Also included are segments suitable for use in worship with the bishop’s thoughts on prayer, stewardship, racism, poverty, witnessing and Christian maturity—a contemporary look at what the United Methodist church can be at its best.
Copies of the DVD are available for $20, shipping and handling included. Ordering is available through the Kansas West Conference.
