Revised Social Principles

officePastor's Blog

As many of you are aware, over the years The United Methodist Church has expressed its understanding of how the gospel impacts our ethical choices in a document called the Social Principles. The Social Principles comprise one section of The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, our denomination’s official rule book. At the 2016 General Conference it was decided that the Principles were in need of a wholesale revision. A rough draft of the new Principles has now been released and all United Methodists are invited to read the document and offer feedback. I also invite you to read and contemplate the new Social Principles and offer your feedback to the committee. You can find the document at:
