The new president of The United Methodist Church’s Council of Bishops gave a nod to the challenges and difficulties of the 2012 General Conference during the closing worship service late May 4 at the Tampa Convention Center. “Many of us, sisters and brothers, leave hurt,” said Bishop Rosemarie Wenner of Germany. “We are called to go and make disciples, (even) in these mixed emotions we are in.” Preaching her homily on the closing verses of Mark’s Gospel following a 10:30 p.m. adjournment, Wenner said that Christ’s call to go out into the world applies to each and every one of us, no matter our situation.
