I picked you up on Methodist Ecumenism. Sorry to see you are ending it. But this is OK. I'm finding there is too much more ecumenism information than I can absorb. But I want to cut to the chase with the idea that one can have joint membership. (Show me why not.) That resolves much. I discuss it in my blog "Extreme Ecumenism."
Also, I am a Catholic who is a Lay Minister in my local Methodist parish. P.S. Help me find the report of the 2011 C-M Dialogue. My email: [email protected] Carry on.

The decision to end Methodist E News was not mine. It is possible someone else will take it up in the future.

I'm not sure where you are finding the ecumenical information. I've been amazed at how few blogs about ecumenism there are - although there are plenty of blog posts.

The British Methodist Church does permit joint membership. I don't know what the UMC's position is. The RCC I would have thought would have more problems with the idea. The reason why not from a British Methodist perspective would be a matter of protocol I suppose. We have a positive relationship with the RCC in Britain and so would not encourage people to break their rules.

I've had a look at ExE - its a pity you don't have a RSS feed as it is not possible to follow you. I'll do my best to keep an eye on it.

The 2011 dialogue report can be found here - http://worldmethodistcouncil.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=87&Itemid=96 - I hope to blog about it soon , when I've had time to read it properly.
