We have been told that our president Steve Veazey is retiring. At World Conference in 2025, we will elect a new prophet/president. We have been asked to move forward in discerning who that will be. It has been suggested that we follow a month of prayer then a month to share.
March is Prayer, April is Share….
There is an excellent video from Steve Veazey about the process that he is hoping we will all participate in. It is available to you on the church website here.
So… March is prayer, the start of the process. You are being asked to join with others and you can write and submit your prayer.
When Kat, Shannon and I shared about Steve, Shannon
said how he has shifted focus to us being a prophetic people instead of a people with a prophet. I am hoping to let the spirit take me on a journey to get to know those who might be able to lead this church. I hope to discern my future and the future of this church.
Here is my prayer for discernment, what will your prayer be?
Dear God, Give me the patience to slow down, breathe in and feel your spirit. I pray for inspiration and wisdom. I pray that if and when I share, I will give value to the conversation about our future. Amen
Yours in Christ,
Gwyn, Kat, and Shannon
