Retirees Gather for Annual Luncheon and Spring Day Apart


North Georgia Conference retirees, clergy who will retire in June, and candidates for ordination at Annual Conference gathered for the annual Retiree Luncheon and a day apart with Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson this week. Sponsored by Wesley Woods, the day included guest speakers, a delicious luncheon, breakout sessions, and worship. 

"I rejoice as I think about how many hours of pastoral care, sermon prep, and youth lock-ins are represented here," said Bishop Sue. 

Bishop Sue called on the retirees to be mentors and to over-invest in the young, to keep up spiritual practices, and to pour themselves out in ministry. Most of all, she called on them to "be a means of grace."
