4 Talking Points about United Methodists

During one of the meals at the Bishop’s Retreat last week, each place setting included a 1-2-3-4 card which is intended to describe United Methodists.

The folded card is designed “to provide talking points about our church and its mission,” states …

We are the people of The United Methodist Church.

  1. We believe in—
    making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
  2. We live by two kinds of holiness.
    • Personal
    • Social
  3. We follow three simple rules.
    • Do no harm.
    • Do good.
    • Stay in love with God.
  4. We work in four areas of focus.
    • Developing leaders
    • Creating places for new people
    • Eliminating poverty
    • Improving health globally

I’m a huge proponent of vision-casting that’s clear and concise. The 1-2-3-4 card is a great way to understand and communicate who we are and what we’re about!

How well do you think it communicates the heart and mission of United Methodists?
