NT Wright and Methodism

Aside

I’m curious if any of you have a similar experience.

The more I read N.T. Wright, the more I see that Methodism grew out of Anglicanism. Almost everything he writes reminds me of John Wesley. I know Wright is not a Methodist, but I see how we United Methodists are the theological descendants and cousins to Anglicans.

 

Just a thought … generous orthodoxy

Aside

I’ve seen a few cases of United Methodist bishops using the phrase “generous orthodoxy” in recent weeks.

I wonder if maybe they talked about this at the bishop’s retreat. Or maybe it is a coincidence. It is not an uncommon phrase, but it seems to be popping up recently.
