Tiaara A. Anderson, a student at Philander Smith College, brought a word of appreciation for the BWC’s support of the Historic Black College Fund.

Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde, of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, shared how one of the Episcopal Church’s greatest sadnesses “is when we lost the Methodists.” She celebrated a move for greater unity between the two faith traditions. “In the meantime,” she said, “there’s nothing stopping us from locking arms and uniting our gaze toward Christ.”

The Commission on the Way Forward sent a video with words of hope about their work to address the issue of human sexuality within the denomination; and the Committee on Faith and Order sent a video about its new study “Wonder, Love and Praise.”

Wonder, Love and Praise” is a study of the United Methodist understanding of what it means to be the church. More information is available on the Wonder, Love and Praise study page.
