Our Bishop Said It

June 7, 2019

Bishop Frank J. Beard said it.

Loudly.

Yesterday at Annual Conference.

And we all heard him.

It happened in Peoria, IL. I’m part of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of The United Methodist Church, and in an afternoon clergy event our newest and soon-to-be-ordained Elders had just been voted into our ranks.

They were ushered in and directed to stand up front.

After our thunderous applause had subsided, and after we’d sat down from our standing ovation welcome, our Bishop told them,

“That which you seek

has been granted.”

What a great line! What an affirmation!

And what a reminder and a recognition of the time, energy, resources, and effort that brought them to that moment. Let’s get back together right there tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a Pop Quiz:

  1. What are you seeking today?
  2. What are you doing today to move toward that goal?
