A Divided and Reunited History 

Acts 15:36-16:5; 2 Timothy 4:9-11
We will look at the division between Paul and Barnabas over Mark to see not only how God continued to work in that division but also how, ultimately they were reunited. We will see the same in our own Methodist history and look for reunification on the other side of this current division.
