Bishop Ward talks about the year of prayer unfolding across our annual conference in this Connections video.
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I thank you for the prayers that you offer for one another, for our church and mission in the world, and for God’s people in every place.
A year of prayer is unfolding across our annual conference. Beginning in the Beacon District, a pilgrimage of prayer began in August. The new district superintendent, Gil Wise, gathered on the courthouse in every county in the Beacon District. People came and prayers were offered for the churches, for the community, for Christ’s mission in the world for all God’s people.
The baton then passed to the Sound District, where similar gatherings were held in the counties of the Sound District. And now the baton is in the Harbor District. It will move from the Harbor District to the Gateway District and on around the conference until June. In this way, we are all invited, in various ways, to pray for one another and for our mission in the world.
Paul wrote, “Give thanks to God and pray at all times without ceasing.” Thank you for your daily prayers for Christ’s mission in the world and for the life we share together.
