Call to Prayer

Call to Prayer

Please add to your prayers the General Conference that meets on Feb. 23-26, 2019 in St. Louis.  You can read more about it by clicking here. As the Conference approaches, I have consulted with the staff and leadership of St. Paul and we want to invite you to join us in these next steps together. 

Call to Prayer
1)  I invite you to pray daily for the General Conference.  Some United Methodists are setting an alarm on their phones to remind them to pray from 2:23-2:26pm (because that is the dates of the General Conference).  Whether it is this time or one that works better for you please join me in praying daily for the Special Called session of General Conference. 

2)We are also organizing a  prayer service for St. Paul the week of General Conference.  The service will be Tuesday, Feb. 19 in the sanctuary at 7pm.  It would include music, prayers led by our leadership and Holy Communion. 

Once General Conference concludes, it will take some time to understand what has been decided and to discern our next steps.  We will begin that process with the following meetings. 

Navigating Our Differences with Love: the Way Forward
Two Sessions, Two Options
Sunday, March 10, 3-4:30 pm | McAdams Hall
Monday, March 25, 6:30-8 pm | McAdams Hall
Following the special called General Conference of the UMC, St. Paul will come together  to understand what actions (if any) the Conference took, and discern our next steps as a congregation.

Resources or further study:
Last Fall, the Discovery Class hosted a series of presentations to help us better understand the issue.   Here is the link to theSt. Paul Way Forward Presentations.

There are also many good resources on the United Methodist Website.

Our faith reminds us that All shall be well because God’s grace is sufficient,
