2006 Conference in San Francisco


To further discussion of the theology of peace Methodists United for Peace with Justice in September 2006 sponsored a National Conference on “Building a Wesleyan Theology of Peace for the 21st Century” in San Francisco. It was held at and co-sponsored by Temple United Methodist Church whose pastor Rev. Schuyler Rhodes first proposed having such a conference.

The purpose of the conference was to bring together church leaders, seminarians, peace practitioners, local clergy, and lay people to sit together and think prayerfully about a Wesleyan theology of peace. As a framework, the conference used the Wesleyan Quadrilateral: Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience. The 90 persons in attendance included United Methodist bishops, clergy, laity, and seminar professors. For more information about the 2006 conference click here.
