Pan-Methodist Union : LUSENET : A.M.E. Today Discussion : One Thread

Now that I am starting Seminary one of my first assignments is to research and write a paper on the proposed union of the various bodies of methodism.

I have been able to come up with some articles on the proposed union of AME, CME, and AMEZ and the union of AME,AMEZ,CME, and UM churches, but I am looking for more sources of information.

Does anyone know any information on the attempts to reunite methodists or have any documentation, reports or proposals that have been given? Also, I would also like to go over some information on past attempts and unification.

Any opinions, details you may have, discussion and help toward finding sources would be appreciated.
