Outsider perspective

With Annual Conferences wrapping up and the issues of the UM General Conference for next year starting to come into focus, I find this bit of outside perspective interesting. In response to the question of which "mainline" denomination he felt was ripe for renewal, John Armstrong picked the UMC. John Armstrong is an evangelical from the reformed tradition, but he interacts very broadly with Christians from a variety of backgrounds, and he leads a ministry called ACT 3. He's worth checking out!

That is a very good post. Armstrong correctly points out that the UMC still has an evangelical base which can turn the denomination around, which other mainline denominations essentially lack.
