Continue the Conversation with Bishop Swanson, August 21

August 14 2019

All clergy are invited to meet with Bishop James E. Swanson, Sr. on Wednesday, August 21 from 1-3 p.m. at Meridian District Office.

This clergy-only gathering is a continuation of the conversations and community building begun during the clergy-only meeting in February and at the clergy session of the annual conference. During this meeting with the Bishop we will hear some of his reflections on his recent trip to England. During this Wesley Heritage Tour, he began to understand more clearly John Wesley's approach to pastoral ministry, the driving influences in his life and how strongly he was driven by community, purpose and relationships. The Bishop will also hear from clergy about their passions and what is burning inside of them.

Clergy who  are not able to participate in the West Jackson District meeting are to attend a clergy-only meeting in another district.  Please talk with the district superintendent and let him know which meeting you will attend.

To help the Bishop be as responsive as possible to clergy needs and desires at these gatherings, please complete a two minute, three-question survey by clicking here.
