David Lowes Watson’s new proposals

David Lowes Watson was our speaker at The Gathering (Texas Annual Conference Pastors’ retreat) last month. He argued for greater attention to discipleship and for extending discipleship power and authority to laity. This article from Singapore majors on his suggestion that United Methodism needs to develop something like a “Lay Elder,” a lay person who is entrusted with spiritual authority. I sure think this would be a good move.
