Greetings: Southeastern Jurisdictional BMCR
Great Meeting! Spiritual worship, informative information, relevant issues and Oh, the hospitality from the front door, front desk, Host Conference, Executive Team and participants were superb!
We certainly “Transcended Boundaries for Radical Change” at our last annual meeting of SEJ Black Methodist for Church Renewal and we are striving toward a new day! Kudos go out to the Bishops who attended and remained throughout the meeting. We also had two founding members of National BMCR who reset the foundations for why we still exist (door openers!).
Those of us who gathered in Memphis need to keep the dialogue and conversation going and share your experiences with our sisters and brothers who were not able to attend.
Let all whom you meet know the door is open. Flexibility, transparency and the commitment to work as a team is now ajar. We must keep pushing for inclusiveness and leadership across generational lines, working in harmony with each other.
There is strength in partnering and working in collaboration with other groups of like concerns and other issues for the sake of building the kingdom of God.
The meal times were heightened by the fellowship, music and song, messages cutting to the souls of who we are and of course, the radical generosity of persons was beyond expectations.
We, the SEJ Executive Committee, pledge our support to each Annual Conference and each chapter in the starting up, revitalizing or continued improvement of your group.
We want to stay connected the year round, not just at annual meeting time. In return, we ask that each of you stay in touch with us and especially your Conference Contact person. A list will be sent to you soon.
The dates for the next annual meeting are October 30-31 and November 1, 2014 in the North Carolina Conference, place To Be Decided. Hold these dates
- LOOK OUT NORTH CAROLINA HERE WE COME -
