I made a series of 29 short videos back in 2019 as part of a personal devotional. For United Methodists, you might recall that was the year of the special session of the General Conference that was to put an end to the debate on homosexuality. GC2019 was probably the lowest point in my time as a United Methodist at that point. The UMC looked more like Washington DC than anything God honoring. As a way to cope with this disappointment, I decided to look back at our core doctrines as found in the Book of Discipline.
These doctrines are the closest thing we have to set in stone as they are practically impossible to change. While some of them do seem odd, they contain many timeless truths. They teach and remind us of who God is, who we are, and what Jesus has done for us. No matter what the UMC looks like in the future, I hope these truths continue to be upheld.
