The Methodist Episcopal Church existed from 1784 to 1939.  Today its legacy continues in The United Methodist Church (1968-).


We give you thanks, our God,

for these days of name convention/conference:

for the mingling of minds and personality,

for the clash of provocative thought and expression,

for the great variety of skills, talents and gifts represented here.

Let your Holy Spirit flow into our lives,

that all these abilities may be used to fulfill your purposes

and extend the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.
