I invite you to read the 23rd Psalm with me as we ask ourselves, “Is there anything more powerful we can do in the coming year than to ask, ‘Where’s the table, Lord?’” It’s at the table where enemies - violence, poverty, abuse, racism, sexism, ageism, all that harms human flourishing - are defeated, and where new life begins. These are overcome when we come to the table that the Lord has prepared for us. Where’s the table? It’s in your church, it’s in your life, it’s in our decision ourselves to come to the table. We have to be at the table. Because God has anointed us for ministry. Because our cups are running over. Because goodness and mercy are following us. We are Alive Together at the Table! [Watch the sending forth service of the 2020 Annual Conference Session as Bishop Bryan rolls out the theme of Alive Together at the Table.]
Your congregation is invited to “Come to the Table” to explore the foundations of our Methodist faith and traditions in a six-part video series featuring South Georgia clergy and laity. Focusing on topics from works of mercy and piety to how we are alive together in the world, these videos will look at the simplicity of living out our faith as disciples of Jesus Christ.
