We are excited about our new communication that will be coming to you next week.
This is my first day back in my office after the 2012 General Conference and I must tell you, I am glad to be home. It has been a long and challenging two weeks that included many highs and lows. We can all be proud of our delegation from the Texas Annual Conference who represented us well and offered leadership and wisdom on many issues.
As our General Conference delegate representatives from the Texas Annual Conference prepare for this upcoming historic gathering, please support their preparations with your prayers.
I recommend as a resource, Bishop Robert Schnase’s "Remember the Future: 30 Days of Preparation, a series of reflections as The United Methodist Church prepares for General Conference 2012. These daily meditations explore hope, purpose, leadership and making and becoming disciples of Jesus Christ. With Wesleyan, scriptural, and leadership themes, explore together the mission of the church in a time of great change.”

Grace and peace,
I love Christmas—especially Christmas Eve.
At the Council of Bishops meeting this week, the bishops heard a report from the Vital Congregations Initiative. Vital Congregations is an initiative of the bishops to identify the most vital congregations in Methodism, to publically share data on the indicators of vitality. When Bishop Schol announced the initial results of this program, I was very pleased to find that the Texas Annual Conference ranked in the top 10 with a vitality percentage of 19.77% (national average is 14.76%).
