Pastor Steve's Monthly Message
Just Say Yes!
The large white envelope from our conference office arrived last week, just as it does every spring. Inside was the packet detailing plans for the summer’s annual session of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of the United Methodist Church. Along with infor- mation about registration and a simple schedule are pages filled with “legislative items” that we will be discussing and voting upon. The resolutions we will vote upon include our annual conference budget for 2017, issues related to clergy pension and healthcare, world missions focus...and even a resolution calling for the “protection of Illinois bobcats.” Most of these resolutions took hours of preparation to be drafted as proposed. Others are simp- ly the fruit of a member’s inspiration for doing ministry at the conference level in a new manner.
Sifting through the many resolutions left me asking, “How well have we enabled the members of Prospect to offer their vision for new realities within the church’s ministries?”
