January 05, 2016
In a recent article in Baton Rouge’s The Advocate, Bishop Cynthia Fierro Harvey shared her hopes, prayers and resolutions for 2016. One of 10 faith leaders quoted, Bishop Harvey said: “Looking toward 2016, United Methodists in Louisiana continue to focus on our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We pray that our congregations throughout the state will continue to lead people to abundant lives in Christ, engaging communities locally and globally in significant ways. We as United Methodists will forge ahead to learn, live and tell the Gospel story, reaching out and drawing in people from all walks of life. We must have eyes to see, hearts to know and ears to hear the cries of the people, especially those crying for a more just world. We are clear that we must remain focused on the mission and not become distracted by the things of the world or, dare we say, the things of the church.”
