Friends in Christ,
We appreciate everyone who joined us for our Pre-Assembly Forum on Tuesday evening in Janesville, as well as those who planned to join us on Sunday afternoon. We regret that the weather did not cooperate with our schedule!
After much work and deliberation by the task force, we are simply unable to reschedule the Sunday forum.
The opening statements by the pre-identified persons from the Tuesday forum are now available here. Other videos will be posted as they become available.
Please note that our Pre-Assembly Discernment Process will end on Friday, May 4, 2018 – the evening before Synod Assembly. At that time, all content from the Pre-Identification Process and the Pre-Assembly Discernment Process (including all profiles and videos) will be removed from the task force website.
We ask that you keep assembly voting members, the task force, Bishop Mary and her staff, and the entire synod in your prayers as we make final preparations for the election.
you have given your Holy Spirit to the church
to lead us into all truth.
Bless with the Spirit’s grace and presence
the people of the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin
as we prepare to elect our next bishop.
Keep us steadfast in faith and united in love,
that we may manifest your glory
and prepare for the way of your kingdom;
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
