Please join us at Trinity UMC  in Sprringfield, MA for
Bishop’s Day on the CWM District
 

Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar is making his annual visits to the districts!  These visits are an opportunity to share a meal and have holy conversation about hopes and plans for our conference.  All appointed pastors are expected to attend and are encouraged to bring at least five laity from each church.
 
This year we plan to have a potluck meal.  Kindly bring a dish to share, a main dish and salads are especially appreciated. The district/church will provide chicken and beverages   Please tell the CWM District Office the dish you plan to bring no later than October 13th so we can be sure we have an assortment.
 
Part of this time will be devoted to the Council of Bishops document Wonder, Love and Praise.  Please review this document prior to our gathering.  We will also be showing the introductory video from the Wonder Love and Praise study.  You can find all the videos in this series at the link.
 
The Anatomy of Peace by the Arbinger Institute is recommended by the Way Forward Commission.  Free video and study materials are available at the website.
