Beyond the Crystal Ball: The State of the Church with Bishop LaTrelle Easterling

Tuesday, March 16, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The last year has cast The United Methodist Church into tumultuous and Spirit-filled times. Even as people of faith, there are times when we desire greater certainty. However, there is no crystal ball that will predict or control the future. 

We remain in a liminal season: The General Conference postponed its policy-making work for another year and called for a Special Session to keep the denomination in order; the Northeastern Jurisdiction postponed its session, thereby creating coverage issues as bishops retire; and the Baltimore-Washington Conference is making plans to affiliate and share episcopal leadership with the Peninsula-Delaware Conference. Add to that mix, the announcement of a proposed new stream of Methodism - the Global Methodist Church - and it becomes clear that we have more questions than answers.

But, amidst the unknowns, we are called to trust in God and lean even more deeply into discipleship. How are we called to faithfully respond and thrive in the season ahead? Bishop Easterling shares information and insights in a webinar Tuesday, March 16, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
