A Letter from Bishop Ward
Dear Colleagues in Ministry,
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ.
I write to you today to witness – and to encourage your witness – in support of the needs of the most vulnerable people in our state. The Methodist church was born as a movement bringing “good news to the poor.” This is still our calling, privilege and responsibility.
I would like you to know three ways in which I am engaged in this season here in North Carolina.
