Doing God's work

Or, another chapter of "Nero fiddles, Rome burns."

I have had considerable interaction with Methodism, and it has always been in my experience a mainline, sensible Protestant group without much care for fighting over small issues. In fact, my partner spent this morning at a Methodist church feeding the homeless, a large part of this particular congregations' social work in the community. Oh, and its membership is largely GLBT, but lots of straight families have joined because they want their kids to grow up in a congregation with a diverse membership. Gee, imagine, a religious community where God's love for humanity is central to worship and practice and the church is a conduit for that love to the community at large.
