Pray for General Conference 2012

Why pray for General Conference?  The votes made at General Conference will impact the future of our church, including issues important to the Southwest Texas Reconciling Ministries Team, the organizer of the vigils.

Local Austin United Methodist Churches, including Trinity, are joining other United Methodists around the world in a prayer vigil for the 2012 General Conference, and we’d like  you to join us!   We will be praying for delegates to the General Conference, including those from our own conference (Southwest Texas), asking for discernment and God’s guidance in their deliberations and actions.   We will also be praying for the non-delegate attendees, including Trinity members who will be at the conference.

All are welcome — and if you cannot make it in person, you are encouraged to individually participate in supportive prayer at any time during General Conference, Tuesday April 24 – May 5, 2012.
