From the Desk of Bishop Webb

Dear Friends,

I learned this weekend that the Commission on a Way Forward report would not be released on July 8 as communicated by the Council of Bishops after our May meeting. The final report has been submitted to the Commission on General Conference, but the translation work is still in process.


It is my understanding that a revised timeline of the completion of the translations will be coming from the Commission on General Conference soon. It is important that the whole church receive this report at the same time. May we continue to pray for our delegation, each delegate who will participate in the special session of General Conference, and The United Methodist Church.



Bishop Mark J. Webb
