UM Bishops Plan on Discipleship

The Bishops have just finished their meeting. They are focusing on making disciples. Sounds good to me. Even better, they say:

The bishops will develop a teaching plan for the church, and measurable goals will be provided for encouraging local congregations in making disciples, Ough said. The plan will cover a common language for the focus, helping people understand what is meant by terms such as “Christian disciple” and “transformation,” and what it means “when we say there’s a uniquely Wesleyan process for forming disciples,” he explained.

They’re finally paying attention to developing a shared vision, and (apparently) no longer assuming using a common phrase – like “Christian Disciple” – is univocal. This is HUGE progress. I just hope it’s not too late.
