Michigan Area Bishop Jonathan D. Keaton reflects upon how he was reminded of God during his recent surgery and recovery.
A number of months ago, I asked both Extended Cabinets to go out and preach on the Mission of the Church. I know; it was probably out of their comfort zone to do so. Weren’t there more exciting and/or relevant things to do than to focus on making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world? Budgets had to be raised. Apportionments paid. Petitions for General Conference had to be crafted. But they went and preached enhancing the churches knowledge or understanding of the Great Commission. They planted seeds for the kingdom with their lips and lives. St. Francis of Assisi put it this way “Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”
