Tuesdays at 7 pm on Zoom: Nov. 28, Dec. 5, Dec. 12 and Dec. 19, 2023
Friends, in November, we will begin a virtual, conference-wide Advent Study of Bishop Ken Carter’s new book, Unrelenting Grace. Bishop Carter calls grace the essence of a holy life, in which we recognize that God’s loving presence in our lives is a gift. Being able to receive that gift and extend it to others “…stretches us, mystifies us, unravels us, and ultimately heals us,” he writes.
For this season of Advent, I invite you to explore the unrelenting grace of God with friends and colleagues from around our conference. The study will help us remember who we are as United Methodists, and give us a sense of common belonging, shared identity and unity. Maybe, it will even put us on a road to healing.
The study will last for just four sessions and will be entirely online on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. Central, beginning on November 28, then continuing December 5, December 12 and the 19th .
There are 35 copies of Unrelenting Grace: A United Methodist Way of Life in Pastor Barrie’s office from the Iowa Conference. You can use the QR code to register for the Bishop’s Zoom Advent Study.
We hope Advent in 2023 might be a season in which we embrace grace, seek holiness, and reconnect with one another, culminating in a conference-wide Epiphany worship service of commitment.
