The Rt. Rev. David Reed introduces our theme, saying “‘Walk in love as Christ loved us’ is our Council theme, as well as the Bible verse (from Ephesians) that will illumine and shape our mission and ministries in 2019. Throughout Council we will connect this passage to our Presiding Bishop’s call to the whole Church to engage, or re-engage, with “The Way of Love,” seven spiritual habits to strengthen our discipleship and help us do the work of the Kingdom of God.”
He explains several activities that will take place during Council 2019, including Way of Love themed bingo and conversations buttons, and then shared a video greeting from the Most Rev. Michael Curry to our diocese.
