They seem to be more busy with social causes than with spiritual gifts.

A very large percentage of what are called the "old school methodists" do in fact speak and pray in what are called "toungues" or have recieved what is called "the gift of toungues".
My grandmothers sister Emmie who died at 98 years of age during 2001 became a methodist when she married a young methodist pastor in 1917. She was married at 14 years old. Aunt Emmie would often tell about the old time methodist meeting houses where as a teenager she would often hear a large percentage of the folks both pray and speak in toungues during services.
When she was 10 years old a methodist minister laid hands on her and spoke in toungues and another minister intepretted the message saying that on the eve of her 14 birthday she would meet her husband to be. And on that exact night a traveling methodist preacher on horseback stopped to water his horse and when he saw her he approached her father and said "Sir The Lord God has insturcted me that i should ask your daughters hand in marriage with all due resect sir may i please marry your daughter". And they lived together until her husbands death in 1987 resulting in a 70 year marriage.
Anymore the UMC SIMPLY IGNORES THE FACT THAT IT WAS ONCE A COMMON THING FOR ITS MEMBERS TO OFTEN SPEAK IN TOUNGUES and the same laid hands on others and prayed in toungues. They are more concerned now with trash issues such as whther or not to allow gays, earth worshippers and other assorted freaks amd weirdos to run amuck within the denomination.
