Edmonds UMC News

Hey...You got your politics in my Wesleyan-ism

Politics is sometimes an uncomfortable topic in churches, communities, families, or maybe even in general. This political season has pushed these comfort zones more than ever, and despite what your political leanings may be, we are in a time of upheaval and political change. Some people are feeling vindicated, while others are terrified, and we are discerning as a church what, if anything, should be done by a community of faith to respond to the current political climate. There have been particular concerns about how proposed policies might impact the poor, the LGBTQ community, Muslims, undocumented immigrants,and people of color. Edmonds UMC, the Pacific NW, Conference of the Methodist Church, and the Global Methodist Church are in very clear agreement on one thing; we need to stand up to protect the most vulnerable, the poor, and the stranger. It’s not a political issue for us as a church, but a humanitarian and ethical question. 

A forum entitled “Voices of the Threatened - A Community Forum for Listening and Discernment” will be held at the church on January 22 from 7:00-9:00p.m. We invite the community to a listening session by people most likely to be impacted personally by proposed policy changes, specially with the United Methodist Mission Field of working for the marginalized in our society. Those interested in the group can contact the church office at 425-778-2119 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
