Prayer and fasting may seem like individual practices, but they have communal consequences.
It is when times are deeply troubled that gathering together physically becomes all the more essential.
So it is with evangelism and discipleship. If we are engaged in both well, they become a seamless movement and we cross the threshold between one and the other without even realizing.
Throughout the Methodist and Wesleyan denominations present in the U.S., within our family we have community leaders, law enforcement officers, active military members, nonprofit leaders, and protest organizers and participants. Our roles overlap and connect, find points of connection and unique departure.
The unique history of the West Indies give a particular context to living out Christian faith and mission.
What would it look like to follow the Great Commission without freedom?
As those of us in the United States celebrate Independence Day today, it may be difficult to imagine that. How would we “go and make disciples” if our government made it illegal?
Would we disobey? Go in secret?
Those are questions facing our brothers and sisters in the Wesleyan Methodist family in Russia.
