Invitation to UMC Young Clergy Collaboration

“Give me one hundred [people] who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergyman or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon the earth.” –John Wesley

Does this describe you? Are you under age 35 and a clergy person in the United Methodist Church?

I invite you to be a part of a collaboration of young clergy at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection on October 8, 2009 just prior to the Leadership Institute 2009.

We will continue on the trajectory set by 40 Days of Prayer and 6 Questions for The United Methodist Church and seek to raise up leaders, share stories and create next steps to renew the church.

You are invited to:

  1. Make arrangements to be present on October 8, 2009 at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection.
  2. Sign up at http://ow.ly/jjEE to confirm your presence.
  3. After sign up, look to receive emails with “UMC Young Clergy Collaboration” in the subject line for time, location and how to prepare for October 8.
  4. Invite two other young clergy to join you.

Homosexuality and the UMC – Adam Hamilton Sermon

I invite you to worship with The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection on Sunday, February 1 online at http://live.cor.org and hear a sermon by Adam Hamilton addressing homosexuality as a part of the sermon series When Christians Get it Wrong.

I was in worship on Saturday night, enjoyed the sermon and appreciated Adam’s sermon. I believe that you will be interested in his perspective, even if you disagree with his approach.

Your Invitation:

  1. Copy and post this invitation at your blog or retweet my latest at Twitter.
  2. Join worship live at http://live.cor.org at either 10:45 AM and 4:00 PM Central Standard Time (GMT -6). (If you are in the Kansas City area join us in person at any service – Worship Schedule)
  3. If you watch online, let us know your response using the Contact Resurrection Live! link after the service.

World Malaria Day 2008 – An Invitation

My dad, Mark Conard, made me aware of World Malaria Day 2008 at this post.

He also made this invitation:

This year, with exactly one month to go before “World Malaria Day 2008,” I want to invite whoever reads this to make a contribution to “Nothing But Nets.” You only have to give $10.00 to make possible one bed net, which will literally be a lifesaver for a child, a youth, or perhaps a family.

I will personally give $10.00 for “Nothing But Nets” for everyone who lets me know between now and then of their gift! (This is only valid for the first 100 people who let me know!)

I am passing the invitation along to you. Give a net for $10. Visit this post and leave a comment.

Let’s change the world.
