“I met those of our society [i.e., Methodist Christians] who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them: (1) To vote without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy. (2) To speak no evil of the person they voted against. (3) To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.” –John Wesley’s Journal – October 3, 1774
Wesley’s words of guidance stand true for today as much as they did in 1774. The North Carolina Conference Board of Church and Society has developed a Voter’s Guide, based on the Social Principles of the UMC. This guide lays out a summary of some resolutions and positions in the structured order of the Book of Resolutions and
Social Principles. It will cover only those issues that are currently factors in this election cycle.
Instructions for use are included so you can determine how closely a candidate’s position aligns with our Social Principles. Then, GO VOTE!
