Methodist Mondays

Ilearned (via various United Methodist sources) about an 8-week series of blog posts that Mark Beeson, senior pastor of Granger Community Church (Granger, IN) is writing, called “Methodist Mondays.”

In Beeson’s first post, he explains the rationale for the series as well as the process (i.e., a new post each Mondays for eight weeks). In the end, he plans to write “a book to help The United Methodist Church.”

Last Monday (4/5), Beeson posted the first question (from the perspective of a future ministry leader) …

So, can you give me a few good reasons to be ordained in the United Methodist Church?

The second question was posted yesterday, which asks about using online social media tools to create “virtual churches” as part of a church’s “multi-site” strategy.

As of this post, there are 62 comments on the first post and 20 already on the second one. The questions are generating mostly positive/constructive comments.

I think it’s an important conversation. I’ve commented on both posts/questions, so far, and I look forward to seeing how it continues over the next six weeks … and beyond!
