The New England Delegation to the 2020 General Conference and the Open Spirit Task Force* (OSTF) have been moving forward with their work and will be holding information sessions in each district. At this gathering facilitators from the OSTF and delegation will share the options that will be presented at the Annual Conference in June 2020 and provide educational materials that will help facilitate congregational conversations about these options. Please contact Evie in the Vermont District Office (email@example.com or 802.485.4724) by February 28, if you plan to attend. * What is the Open Spirit Task Force? The New England Annual Conference mandate to the Open Spirit Task Force is “to examine whether and how United Methodists of New England might align with, create, or form a new church body in the Methodist tradition (independently or in collaboration with others).” Read more about OSTF work so far here.
