It has been a long but inspiring day here at Methodist Central Hall Westminster. Revd Roger Walton and Ms Rachel Lampard have been inducted as President and Vice President of the Methodist Conference 2016-2017 and we have heard their addresses on holiness and justice. The photo shows Revd Dr Barry Sloan, of the United Methodist Church Germany Conference, greeting Rachel, as Roger waits to receive the next of the World Church Partners.
I will endeavour to remember to take photos for the blog this week, in the midst of all the business and conversations of Conference. Tonight I am thankful for the ministry of Revd Steve Wild and Dr Jill Barber and pray that this week will be filled with joy and blessing for them, and refreshment after such a busy year. Please join me in praying for Roger and Rachel now, as they embark on their year of service to the Methodist people.
