annual conference united methodist church

Bishop Jones Said… (4 of 4)

The final quote from Bishop Jones for this week is striking in its simplicity and profundity.

United Methodist clergy live in their conference.

I have heard this many times from Bishop Jones and each time he makes sure that the audience takes time to let it sink in. It has implications for ministry, relationships with other clergy, the atmosphere of the annual conference, serving beyond the local church, seeking revival in different places and many others.

Ponder it for a while.

It has continued to grow on me.
