I just want to say a quick word about the incredible people we had attend Exploration 2009. I was so inspired by the youth and young adults that attended. I am excited for the future of the UMC as Katie Lewis said in much better words. However, now the work begins. We need to be praying for these people and encouraging them in their journey in ministry. I will be planning another retreat for senior high youth that weren’t able to attend Exploration for various reasons to further explore ordained and lay ministry. Let me know if you’d like to be a part of that experience.
Here are their names – please lift them up in prayer for guidance, perseverance, confidence, peace and faithfulness.
