At our Annual Conference Session in Las Cruces, I encouraged us to lean into what it means to be conferring together, to share together, to bear together. Also in Las Cruces, we learned from Rev. Jorge Acevedo of the critical work of the Commission on a Way Forward. These are challenging times to be the Church, and I anticipate that over the next few months and years, every pastor, every local church, and every faithful layperson will struggle with any number of challenges (large and small) in our shared ministry and witness. All the more reason for us to work together, to listen together, and to come together.
As part of Bishop Bledsoe’s Fall Itineration, we will be sharing and discussing with each other what our common, shared mission is—what are we called to do and be together? We’ll also share and discuss the challenges each of us faces in ministry at the local level, and what a hopeful future—a “way forward” might look like in our context. This is an incredible opportunity to come together, to share with our episcopal leader, Bishop Bledsoe, and to bear together our hopes and fears as we strengthen our connection and our conversations for mission and ministry.
I hope to see you there! Randall Partin, Provost
