As a follower of Jesus, I still choose to be a member of The United Methodist Church because I want my life to be connected to the story of God’s inviting love that is still beyond my understanding. I want the story of my life to be witness to the claiming grace of God where people are baptized and invited to the Lord’s Table so they may join in the journey of following Jesus.
