A Lenten Challenge for United Methodists

Bishop Thomas J. Bickerton, president of the Council of Bishops of The United Methodist Church has called on fellow United Methodists to use the Lenten Season to pray that God will create within us a clean heart and a renewed spirit.

“There is no doubt that as we absorb the realities of splintering, disaffiliation, and post-Covid, it is time for us as United Methodists to make the pivot away from what was into new and concerted efforts to reclaim, revive and renew The United Methodist Church throughout the world,” Bishop Bickerton said in the Lent message released today on Ash Wednesday.
