Holy Conferencing

The United Methodist Discipleship Ministries says this about the idea of “Holy Conferencing
We can change the world through honest conversation on matters about which we are passionate.
It’s not often that we reflect on the fact that our meetings are something holy. I’ll admit, there are always moment during Annual Conference that I get tired and wonder why I travel for meetings and reports.

But then there are moments I am blessed. I wanted to share some of the things that blessed me from the Florida Annual Conference Meeting last week.
  • We gathered together as a clergy and laity body, from 700+ churches, stretching from the Florida Keys to Tallahassee, for the first time since 2019.
  • We had wonderful moments of worship, in all different styles, include times of prayer for each other.
  • The theme of the conference was Rebuilding the Church, Remembering the Body. To honor that, we discussed all of the amazing things that have happened to renew pastors and churches over the past 3 years.
  • We heard people work together, even though they disagreed.
The picture above is one of many prayer stations all around conference.

This is a wonderful prayer for us this week. Lord Jesus, help us as a church, love others everyday as you have loved us!
