FROM THE BISHOP
Navigating this Next Season Together
At the conclusion of the Called Annual Conference Session on August 20 I recorded a video I want to now share with you. I hope you will hear my heart and hear my commitment to churches committed to remaining at the table and navigating this next season together.
Despite all that is going on around us, I am excited about our focus on mission and ministry and the great work we will be doing in connection with one another as we move forward. One of the things I am most excited about is the formation of the Bishop’s Diversity, Inclusion, and Vitality Task Force. You can read more about this Task Force here
I also want to invite you – both clergy and laity – to join me at one of the September gatherings
in a location near you. I look forward to visiting, talking with, and listening to clergy and laity from each district as we seek to bring clarity around where we are as a denomination and a conference.
I am thankful for each of you and your ministry.
Bishop David Graves
