New Room Conference Jewel: You work for God and God’s kingdom.

 

God works in the midst and the mess of our lives.

 

What’s the relationship between your calling from God and the denomination in which you live out your calling?

 

How can we as ministers help others better understand the dynamics of this reality?

 

The Holy Spirit’s got this! Is the Spirit strong in this one? In your very life?

 

Not everyone has the privilege to so easily move denominations or be received and affirmed by others.

 

Excerpt from Bevil’s poem, “Faith in the Woods”

Wondering deeply on into the night

Who we are and what will become

Methodist for now but called by God

Messy existence not really so odd

Real dialogue in the small group

Hits closer to home and truth

 

Baptisms and new professions of faith

Could shape all of our understanding

We can walk from here more clear

Guided by the Spirit now; appear
