Tearing It Down to the Frame

Classic Approach

There are two approaches to your classic car. Keep it original or strip to the frame and rebuild with different parts. The Traditional Plan keeps it original. I like keeping original in both cases.

Wesley saw the problem in having bishops. They get the "Big Head" and start doing whatever they want. That's why he set us up with Superintendents instead. Our current bishop problem goes back to Asbury wanting an upgrade to bishop against Wesley's desires. He ignored Wesley and got his upgrade anyway. Just like our bishops today ignoring our Book of Discipline and recommending a life of debauchery to the flocks under their care. Wesley would dismiss them in two shakes of a Billy Goats tail.

I am good with this

I much prefer your plan than the current plans floating around. Most of the current plans guarantee compete break down and dissolution to the benefit of the conservatives while the rest of us are stuck finding new homes. I am wary of maintaining connection with others who simply want an excuse to move on with property and money. This gives everyone something they can call their own.

"We've reached the point in the fight against coronavirus, this awful and unseen enemy, that lays bare the truth that the evangelists of self-sufficiency and libertarian excess bow before a false god. May the lesson be indelibly inscribed on the minds of the generations soon to move into positions of leadership. We need one another."    – National Catholic Reporter editorial, March 24, 2020
