This week Joy Lenz and I will embark on Grand Island, NE to serve as delegates at the Great Plains Annual Conference. This is the gathering of all of Kansas and Nebraska United Methodist clergy and lay people. We come together to worship together, learn from presenters, vote on legislation, celebrate retirements and ordinations, etc. It is a great chance for to see what other United Methodists are doing across the connection.
Each church gets one lay delegate for every clergy appointed to serve their church, so that means we have one lay delegate at Grace for our one clergy person (me). This year, our lay delegate is Joy Lenz. She is excited about this role and – GOOD NEWS – she has agreed to blog about her experience! You will get to hear first hand updates from Joy about Annual Conference and her experiences. She will update each night and we will post here to the blog.
