      From the Reconciling Ministries Network. An announcement about a new
      book United Methodism @ Risk: A Wake-Up Call

      "Our Denomination is at Great Risk!"

      So begins the preface to a new book written by Leon Howell and
      published by the Information Project for United Methodists (IPUM).
      This valuable new resource informs the reader about groups on the
      "right" end of the theological and political spectrum within The
      United Methodist Church. These self-identified "conservative
      renewal groups," include Good News, Renew Women's Network, Lifewatch,

      Transforming Congregations, the Mission Society of United Methodists
      and the Confessing Movement. The ways in which the Institute on
      Religion and Democracy undergirds the work of the above�mentioned
      groups is also covered.

      Learning about the origins of the groups, their goals, strategies,
      tactics, sources of funding and interconnectedness gives one a sense
      of urgency. We must challenge them about the direction they are
      trying to take the church.

      A STUDY GUIDE by Bishop C. Dale White (retired) and the Rev. Scott
      Campbell is found in the book. It includes questions for discussion
      and reflection that are suitable for individual use or with a group.


      Finally, there is a CALL TO ACTION. United Methodism at Risk
      provides the reader with a far deeper understanding of the scope of
      the threat posed by the "conservative renewal groups."

      TO PURCHASE COPIES OF THE BOOK � Contact the Methodist Federation for
      Social Action (MFSA) mfsa@.... Call 202-546-8806. Books are
      $5.00 plus S&H.
