Welcome to Appointment Season

 

Please keep all who are in leadership in your prayers in these trying times after General Conference 

 

Please use the following link to read Bishop Saenz letter in regards to the General Conference

Note: Place on your calendars that Bishop Saenz has scheduled Regional gatherings for the period following the GC2019 session to meet with pastors and laity for conversations about moving forward. These will not be set up as town halls but are intended to be a pastoral approach and held as appropriate opportunities for reflection. Mark the dates and plan to attend.

The initial dates give us two opportunities on the Prairie Rivers District: March 23 is set for Columbus Outreach Center from 10-12:30, and April 27 is set for Grand Island Trinity from 10-12.

Bishop is purposefully making himself available for these time periods. He refuses to accept a political role in this conversation and identifies himself to be purposefully pastoral. This has not, nor will it change. This is his purpose and approach.  I choose to focus on the questions of Gil Rendle: Who are we? What has God called us to do? And- Who is our Neighbor?

In the meantime let us: Pray. Be present. Be faithful to our callings. Do all we can to reflect the words of Christ: “By this will all people know that you are my Disciples, in that you love one another.” John 13:35
