Tom Lee grew up in a congregation I was privileged to serve for ten years. My daughters were in youth choir and UMYF with him. His mother was one of my wife Linda’s friends. His father, mother, and sister contributed immeasurably to the life and mission of that congregation.
Tom puts the current talk of schism within The United Methodist Church in historic, political, and cultural context. Everyone concerned about the future of the denomination will benefit from reading his prophetic, insightful analysis.
