40 Days of Prayer for the UMC

I am excited about the upcoming 40 Days of Prayer for the United Methodist Church. This idea was first mentioned by Ben Simpson in An Open Letter to Young United Methodist Leaders. I am excited about this movement because I believe that it will:

  • Bring clarity of God’s vision for individuals and communities
  • Be a common effort that will lead to different types of renewal in different places across the denomination.
  • Become a catalyst for a movement of young leaders in the UMC across the nation
  • Help me to be more intentional about prayer for leaders in the denomination.

I am looking forward to this time of prayer to shaping my vision for the United Methodist Church.

Will you join me in prayer?

My Campaign Promises

I am going to cast my vote today.

I printed out a sample ballot and have considered every issue or person for whom I will be voting.

Regardless of who wins or loses any of the elections – national, state or local – here are my promises to you:

  • I promise to be positive about the future of our country.
  • I promise to be supportive if the candidate(s) for whom I vote does not win.
  • I promise to be humble  if the candidate(s) for whom I vote wins.
  • I promise to pray for the future president and vice-president.
