    • 2008, Lorelei F. Fuchs, Koinonia and the Quest for an Ecumenical Ecclesiology:
      Can it be said that here is an application of Methodism's concept of connexionalism to the embodiment of koinonia? That no indications in the dialogue point overtly in this direction does not rule out the possibility of it being in the Methodist mind and heart.
