June has been quite the crazy whirlwind month! I attended the Great Plains Annual Conference, I was ordained as an Elder in Full Connection—this is the United Methodist clergy equivalent of getting tenure!—and then I spent a week teaching teenagers about Methodist theology at Confirmation Camp. (Fortunately, camp wasn’t all work and no play: in between classroom sessions, I honed my archery skills and went ziplining for the first time and made a spiffy tie-dyed t-shirt!)
Ordination–you might notice our District Superintendent on the left!
It seems like the summer is rushing by very quickly, but we’ve got some amazing community outreach opportunities on the horizon1 We’ll be talking about these more in church over the next couple of weeks, but please mark your calendars and fire up your ovens for the following events!
