Abstract 

The author reports that over 200 laypeople and ministers from the Methodist church in six Southern states (Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina) intend to resist integration in the Methodist church. They have resolved to preserve separate jurisdictions for white and black members, inform Methodists of integration efforts in the church, request that delegations to conferences oppose integration, request leaders to explain how integration would affect the church, and recommend that groups confer with black leaders.
