From her web site:
Each generation is called to carry the gospel to a new generation. I believe the United Methodist Church is poised to engage a multi-cultural, globally conscious generation in the West with the good news of Jesus Christ. Our Wesleyan heritage offers rich resources for this mission in our region:
enthusiasm for sharing the grace and love of Jesus Christ
passion for ministry with poor and marginalized people
love of knowledge and of the natural world confidence in the power of the Holy Spirit to transform and make new a "catholic spirit" of fellowship with anyone whose "heart is as my heart" educated clergy in partnership with empowered laity a lay movement of small groups, where seekers become disciples. Since my youth God has called and empowered me for ministries of renewal and oversight. I continue to say "yes" to God's claim on my life.
I love the church that nurtured and ordained me. I yearn and work for the church God calls us to become.
