Friday, March 1

ALCOA, Tenn. (8 p.m., March 1) — The president of the Council of Bishops, Bishop Kenneth Carter, released the following pastoral letter today:

James does not call us to identify the sins of one another. He calls us to confess our sins to one another, and to pray for one another, so that we may be healed. Our mutual prayer and confession is for a larger purpose: our healing. And our healing is for an even greater purpose: that we might be “repairers of the breach” (Isaiah 58:12).

Bishop Kenneth Carter, president, Council of Bishops

Congregations are asked to share the complete letter during Sunday worship, March 3.

Also on March 3, please make plans to attend 3/3 @ 3 for worship and delegate briefings in each of Holston’s nine districts. See March 3 at 3 p.m. locations.

Please pray for God’s church, our leaders, our members, for those who are grieving, and our delegates.
