Let’s pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on these meetings!

On the road » This week, I am in Silver Spring, Md., for the General Conference Annual Council, where leaders and laypeople from around the world convene to discuss ministry and ways to further it in God’s church.
One of the big themes for this meeting will be youth ministries. There are numerous other items on the agenda, including how the GC will respond to the recent actions on women’s ordination voted by the Columbia and Pacific Unions. I invite your prayers for our church as together we move forward with the great work the Lord has given us!
Wherever you are worshiping this coming Sabbath, may the Lord be with you and bless you!
