Hello beautiful people of South Georgia,
When we started the appointment process for this year, I joined the appointive cabinet in checking off every pastor under appointment in South Georgia. There are more than 600 pastors who have appointments. Then I thought about all the congregations in the South Georgia conference. There are well over 100,000 clergy and laity who identify themselves as United Methodist in our area alone. Wow! What an awesome witness you are to the glory of God. There are so many of you who are dedicated disciples of Jesus Christ and who share the love of Christ every day of your life. What a difference you are making in this world today. Below are some of the pictures I see as I allow my mind to take a panoramic view of our conference.
Jesus said in John 14:12, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these …”
I recently saw a car sticker that read, “Get rich quick – count your blessings.” When I start counting my blessings, I think about the people called United Methodist in South Georgia, where I see amazing disciples of Jesus Christ growing a Christlike world.
Thanks for the wonderful works of God through you. Thanks for making the world a better place.
Until next time remember, God’s will for us is good. We must do the rest.
