John Wesley wrote the Catholic Spirit

With levels of Christian unity--there were different levels of affection for Christians that was dependent on how theologically people were in step with each other. He did this because he understood that we live in a world dominated by human brokenness. He never strove for a utopia right here and right now, he created space where people could live a life centered in God regardless of their circumstances. Any connection early Methodism had was about people deciding to connect themselves to John Wesley and his particular set of beliefs. And it was the lives of these particular people who were his number one priority.

   Retired Bishop William Willimon“Part of being in a church is to be with people that you don’t agree with and many of whom you don’t like. As a bishop, I should be the person saying, ‘I’m going to make it as hard as I can for [this division to occur].’”

– Retired Bishop Will Willimon, quoted in the Duke Chronicle, the student newspaper of UMC-related Duke University.
