Try It This Week (A Disciple-Making Tool)

Many of you will read this as you head to Annual Conference today. If you aren't a clergy or lay member of Annual Conference, you are likely thinking about and praying for Annual Conference this week. I want to offer a simple "try it this week" word of encouragement to each of you. It comes from a recently released Contemporary Christian song by Zach Williams entitled "Fear Is A Liar".  In the song, Zach says: "Cast your fear in the fire because fear, it is a liar."

We are prone to fears and anxieties in the church these days as we face the unknown. However, as you pray for Annual Conference and The United Methodist Church, "cast your fear in the fire"! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and believe that the Holy Spirit will lead and bless the church according to God's good and gracious purposes.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in faith so that you OVERFLOW WITH HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit. - Romans 15:13 CEB  I look forward to seeing many of you this week at Annual Conference. For those reading today who won't be there, thank you for your prayers.

Always praying for you,
