Currents for unity

“God desires unity,” says Bishop Ken Carter, a moderator on the Commission on a Way Forward.

Bishop Ken Carter is the episcopal leader of the Florida Conference. He also is one of three moderators of The Commission on a Way Forward and president-elect of The Council of Bishops of The United Methodist Church.

In a recently filmed video conversation, Bishop Carter lists seven reasons why he believes The United Methodist Church will remain united and why that’s a good thing.

  1. Consistent witness of scripture toward unity
  2. Our doctrine of grace.
  3. Persons in the LGBTQ community are present in our local churches among our clergy and laity.
  4. Our global mission incarnates the gospel across the world
  5. Younger generations are passionate about the unity of the church.
  6. There is a massive centrist experience.
  7. We want to avoid structural harm that would divert resources to the legal pursuit of division.
