|The Rev'd. Dr. David Wilson|
What I found to be profoundly frustrating, however, is where Dr. Wilson was introduced. You see, the guests were introduced under certain categories. Pan-Methodism was one of the categories. World Council of Churches was a category. Ecumenical Guests from the U.S. was a group. Ecumenical guests from Florida was the final grouping. Prior to all of these (even Pan-Methodists), were World Methodism (i.e., those from the World Methodist Council).
I ask, in what grouping should Dr. Wilson, the General Secretary of the international Church of the Nazarene be introduced? - I would assert (I did say suggest, but that is far too weak a word) that it most certainly should not have been under the category of Florida! Yet, that is where he was introduced!
In fact, in those categories, Dr. Wilson should not have even been introduced under "Ecumenical Guests from U.S.," though this would have been better than Florida, in as much as he is the General Secretary of an international denomination.
However, Dr. Wilson, by all rights as General Secretary of the Church of the Nazarene, a World Methodist Council member denomination, should have been introduced along with the other representatives of World Methodism.
Somebody, please explain . . .
