The Wesleyan Covenant Association, a newly formed evangelical group of clergy and laity seeking to have the United Methodist Church go in a theologically conservative direction, held its inaugural one-day conference in Chicago, Illinois, on Friday that was attended by over 1,800 people.
"I am convinced God is doing a new thing among those of us who claim the historic, Orthodox, evangelical, Wesleyan expression of our faith," said the Rev. Jeff Greenway of Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church near Columbus, Ohio, who is one of the leaders of the WCA, according to Good News magazine.
"I believe we are planting seeds today that when full grown will bear the fruit of a vital Wesleyan witness and a dynamic Spirit-filled Methodism across the globe," he added while speaking at the conference, as reported by UMC.org. more >>
Several notable evangelical women leaders, some of whom have themselves experienced sexual assault, are expressing their disgust at the response of Christian leaders to Donald Trump's 2005 lascivious comments about groping women that surfaced October 7.
On Twitter, popular teacher and evangelist Beth Moore said Friday in a string of Tweets that she was one such victim.

Harvest Bible Church Pastor James MacDonald recently denounced Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's 2005 comments on women as "lecherous and worthless."
Pastor MacDonald was part of Trump's evangelical advisory council, a group of mostly conservative evangelical leaders whose involvement in the council did not necessarily equate to an endorsement of the campaign.
In an email MacDonald sent to members of the council on Saturday, MacDonald argued that Trump's 2005 comments were worse than mere "locker room banter." more >>
Liberal filmmaker and activist Michael Moore recently compared the debate performance of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to Jesus Christ.

Mormon political commentator Glenn Beck has strongly criticized conservative Christians who are still backing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump despite the recently released video exposing lewd comments against women, and argued that believing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is worse is not an excuse.
"You chose to support him. Many while we still had some of the best choices the right has had in my lifetime. It is that choice that we will all regret in the end. What are you going to say at the judgment seat? 'Lord, but Hillary?'" Beck wrote on Facebook on Sunday night ahead of the presidential debate.
He continued: "It sickens me to read the posts from 'conservative Christians.' The very same people who lectured the left about Bill Clinton. I thought character mattered. Does it still? Or is that just for Democrats?" more >>
