United Methodists of the Memphis Conference are called to pray for reconciliation & healing: Aug. 20-26
A seven-day CALL TO PRAYER to begin Sunday, Aug. 20, has been issued to United Methodists of the Memphis Conference of The United Methodist Church.
The Memphis Conference includes churches in West Tennessee and Western Kentucky.
The call comes from David R. Reed, Memphis Conference lay leader, in cooperation with Bishop Bill McAlilly, the Memphis Conference Connectional Ministries office and Memphis Conference Board of Lay Ministry, to “pray for justice for all who suffer from hatred, bigotry, violence, injustice and forms of oppression” and to “contemplate, pray and make changes in our lives/communities for reconciliation and healing … in our churches, communities and country.”
The language and tools for this Call To Prayer are inspired and provided by the Board of Laity of the Western North Carolina Conference of The Untied Methodist Church in the wake of events that transpired in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend.
