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.
- We believe in—
making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
- We live by two kinds of holiness.
We follow three simple rules.
- Do no harm.
- Do good.
- Stay in love with God.
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?
