Notes From The Lay Leader

Last December, or January the conference offered a course on Single Board Governance.  I thought it was an interesting concept, but was too late to sign up and attend the meeting.  The conference did put the program up on their website with all 12 lectures on it.  I am interested in looking further into this idea and wondered if there were any other members at Nestor who would be interested in exploring Single Board Governance for our church.  This is not an attempt to change how we currently do the church's business, but a possible alternative way to approach out church's business.  Even if some of us think it might be a way to go, the ad council is the final  determinant on how we do business as a church.  If yo want to look further at this method go to this website.

http://www.calpacumc.org/simpleboardgovernance/

After viewing the course if you want to look further into the idea I would be happy to have you join me as we study the theological and rational ideas about Single Board Governance.

 

Yes, I do note that the website calls this simple board governance, and the lectures are listed as single board governance, but it is all the same thing

BISHOP HAGIYA'S CALL TO PRAYER ON THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTING

 

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

1 Corinthians 13:1 (New International Version)

I know that God is in agony over the nearly 60 lives lost and those hundreds of people fighting for their lives because of the shooting that occurred this past weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The many victims of what is now considered the deadliest mass shooting in the United States in recent history include the colleagues, neighbors, and loved ones of many of us here in the California-Pacific Conference region.

We have been left with trying to make sense of a totally senseless act of violence. Not only will we continue to ask the questions of how and why, what and where, for ourselves, we will have to guide our children and young people through such tough questions as well.

As a United Methodist follower of Jesus Christ, I believe that our words alone will not be enough in bringing about genuine healing in times such as these. What we must rely upon is the transformative love of God to be the true balm that will ultimately bring about peace in ourselves and in our society.

We, the California-Pacific Conference, can love transformatively as we embrace in prayer all those directly affected by the violence, as we stay connected with Bishop Robert Hoshibata and our sister conference, the Desert Southwest Conference, which includes Las Vegas, Nevada, as we open our church sanctuaries for spiritual centering and comfort, and as we support and participate in the work of our Cal-Pac Peace with Justice and the General Board of Church and Society to end gun violence.

The California-Pacific Conference is, unfortunately, no stranger to such incidents of mass violence.  But, let us step forward in courage and faith once again so that all may experience God's life-giving and transformative love.

Be the Hope,

Bishop Grant J. Hagiya
Los Angeles Area Resident Bishop
The United Methodist Church
