SIR,—The Bishop of Southwark implies that if the Methodist and

Anglican Churches were united, the Methodist Minister who was recently expelled by the act of the Methodist Conference would have been allowed to continue.

May I ask him how the Anglican Church deals with any Minister who continually refuses to give allegiance to the distinctive doctrine of Christianity, namely that relating to the Deity of Our Lord? J. M. NEILSON Secretary Methodist Stewardship Organisation / Central Buildings, Westminster, SW!
