  • A Catechism in Community for the United Methodist Church

    ANDREA L. HARVEY (2011-01-01)
    ABSTRACT The United Methodist Church has been experiencing a significant decline in membership in the United States and Europe in the 21* century. 4 Catechesis in Community outlines a method to assist local churches that are struggling to find their place in post-modern society. Youth and church administrators were surveyed concerning their personal beliefs, perception of the Church’s inclusion of young people, spiritual formation and Christian education within the Church. A brief survey of Christianity and the roots of Methodism remind the Church of today where they came from and John Wesley’s admonition to ‘make Christians’.

  • Reaching the Buster Generation

    Towns, Elmer L. (ePLACE: preserving, learning, and creative exchange, 1991-12-01)
    The first Baby Buster turned 25 years of age in 1991, but Busters do not march to the same drum beat as their Boomer parents. Their Boomer parents were fighters and winners, fighting for women’s rights, nuclear freeze, and the peace movement. They hated Vietnam and the Cold War and they loved the "Camelot" Kennedy Years in the White House. But their Baby Busters are different. They have no great dreams, no battles to win, no mountains to climb. They are a generation with busted dreams, busted ambitions, and busted trust.

  • The Relational Church: Being for and with Youth

    Wiederhold, Joseph Brett (Digital Commons @ SPU, 2022-01-01)
    The mainline church, present with youth, could begin to recognize the presence of youth in our worship services, prayer teams and leadership teams as adding value and depth to the community of believers. Youth outside of the church are hurting and desperate for belonging. Youth need relationships; youth need Jesus! Despite the church’s history of marginalizing youth, declining numbers and seeming irrelevance amongst the current Generation Z youth, the church can fulfill a vital role in seeing youth as people created in the image of God, allowing God’s church to reach our hurting world by way of the young people in our midst. It will take a repentant church that trusts God to lead us on this journey alongside youth, knowing that our hope is in Jesus and not in the systems and power structures of humans.

  • The reconciliatory role of Holy Communion in the Methodist tradition

    Bentley, Wessel (Verbum et Ecclesia, 2012-02-09)
    Violence is an instrument of segregation, whether it manifests physically, emotionally, verbally 
 or by any other means. Can the church be an instrument of reconciliation where people have 
 been divided through violence? This article explores the reconciliatory role of the Sacrament 
 of Holy Communion in the Methodist tradition, which has as a Christian denomination, 
 experienced many threats of division in its history. Holy Communion, it is argued, is the one 
 place where people, who may find every reason not to be together, are invited to share in an 
 event which unites them.
