McLaren Receives Warm UMC Welcome The United Methodist Reporter wrote a story on Brian McLaren's relationship with the United Methodist Church and Claremont School of Theology.

"Brian McLaren is not now nor has he ever been a United Methodist.

"But the popular – and controversial – Christian thinker keeps showing up in Methodist circles, and even adding UM affiliations, such as joining the board at Claremont School of Theology."

This was the opening for The United Methodist Reporter story on McLaren by Managing Editor Sam Hodges. Read the full story.

If you haven’t yet seen McLaren’s comments on the future of the Christian church in America during his latest visit to Claremont School of Theology, watch the video “Where is the church going?”

In it, Public Theologian and CST Trustee Brian McLaren, Bishop Grant Hagiya, and Pastor/Stand-up Comedienne (and CST alum) Jane Voigts spoke to a packed house in CST’s Mudd Theater, with Dean Philip Clayton moderating on Feb. 12. It was a highly entertaining and provocative discussion of trends in American religion and emerging best practices in ministry.
