A Mission and Ministry Message from Bishop Tracy S. Malone
Beloved, I am thankful that I get to witness a measure of all of the fullness of God across the East Ohio Conference. God’s Spirit is moving in and through our United Methodist churches in some amazing and transformative ways. I see a measure of the fullness of God as I attend your worship services and share in conversations with clergy and laity. I see a measure of the fullness of God as I witness how local churches are sharing the love, the grace, and the hospitality of Jesus Christ with their neighbors, how you’re feeding the hungry and caring for those who have suffered trauma and pain, and how you are connecting with those who are looking for hope and community,” shares Bishop Tracy S. Malone in the above video message.
Later in her message Bishop Malone reiterates that it has always been her hope and prayer that no one feels that they have to choose to leave or separate from The United Methodist Church and she assures clergy and laity of congregations seeking to disaffiliate that “no one will be abandoned” should they wish to remain United Methodist.
The bishop’s video message also includes a timeline of three important dates related to matters of disaffiliation.
