Bonus Blog: “What does it say about our processes?” — a prayer request

May 16, 2016

A friend involved in the current General Conference of The United Methodist Church, meeting in Portland through May 20, shared this disturbing report and question yesterday —

“In the Church and Society B legislative committee on Friday, the chair collapsed and required EMT service; on Saturday the vice-chair passed out, also requiring emergency medical attention.

“What does it say about our processes when the stress level is so high that our leaders drop like flies?”

— I’m asking you at the start of this new work week to please keep everyone involved in “GC16” in Portland in your prayers.

For lotsa reasons.

(And let’s not even think about his question as it relates to local church leaders, both laity and clergy: “What does it say about our processes when the stress level is so high that our leaders drop like flies?” That’s another topic for another time.)

Remember: prayers for all involved in General Conference this week. Thank you.
