Dear Broadway community,
Beloveds, I am slowly getting into the rhythm of things and am catching up with emails and phone messages and texts, even as I continue to prepare for the upcoming 2020 General Conference of the United Methodist Church. While I have been trying to keep you informed with all that is happening, I feel it is also important that we, as a congregation, also have our own conversations and think of where we would want to be as a congregation and who would we want to align with, post May 2020.
A national movement that I am apart of is UMForward, who has offered the NEW (New Expressions Worldwide) Plan. But there is similar work happening locally. A couple folk from our Annual Conference have been inviting congregations to come together -- to speak to each other and together discern where we see ourselves after May of this year.
