The Moravian Church Southern Province Synod recently approved a resolution describing their successful work to achieve unity despite disagreement.

The language of the resolution sounds familiar to those of us in The United Methodist Church – this denomination is the direct descendant of the Moravians who inspired John Wesley with their fearlessness on his voyage to Georgia. In addition, we agreed at the 2016 General Conference to finalize steps toward full communion with the Moravian Church.

Perhaps the Moravians will inspire us again.

Uniting Methodists is a movement rather than an organization. As a movement we are striving for greater inclusion and genuine representation in pursuit of shared goals. The statements found on this website represent our current consensus about important questions before the church. We invite suggestions, critique, and engaging conversations from persons across the UMC. The Uniting Methodists Leadership Team views this work as iterative and certain to be added to and enhanced over time.
