Dr. Martin Thielen has written an article which was recently posted on the United Methodist Reporter website about why he made the move from being a Baptist pastor to a United Methodist pastor.
I identify with much of what Rev. Thielen says about what attracted him to the UMC, particularly when he discusses the Wesleyan emphasis on grace, the Wesleyan Quadrilateral, his growing understanding of the Sacraments and the value of connectionalism.
The article is a good read! Follow the link below to the UM Recorder site.
