Woven Together: All of our threads come together at General Assembly

By Bo Prosser

BoresizedI love General Assembly!  And that surprises me because crowds are not really my thing.  But I love seeing friends from across the Fellowship, putting names and faces together, making new friends.  There is a palpable excitement in the air around Assembly time in anticipation of the relationships to renew and begin.

Sharing with friends who’ve walked with me over the years is reassuring that our friendship is strong and genuine.  Sharing with new friends is exciting and gives me hope for the years to come.

Our relationships matter; we need one another.  We are “weavers” sharing our threads of relationships to be the presence of Christ in the world.

Our threads intertwine into a beautiful Fellowship.  The thread of relationships binds us together and weaves us into the beautiful Fellowship that we are.  My “thread of relationships” is woven through our States and Regions and the many congregations we serve. My “thread” is woven with our theological schools, organizations and program partners to weave leaders and resources for those congregations.  My “thread” is woven with pastors, staff ministers and lay leaders to make a difference in churches and communities around our world.

All of our “threads” come together annually at General Assembly.  These are exciting days.

What are we weaving together?  What will our weaving resemble?  I have no idea!  But I do know that without one another we cannot weave our threads together.  Bring your spool of thread to Atlanta, I’m bringing mine.  I can’t wait to see you and to see what we are weaving!

We are excited to see you at General Assembly! Finalize your General Assembly plans at thefellowship.info/assembly! See you in Atlanta!

One thought on “Woven Together: All of our threads come together at General Assembly

  1. May the presence of the Christ moving among the Gathering make smooth any knots in our thread, may peace like a river flow through us as we weave the cloak together, may the weaving become a coat of many colors representing All of God’s Creation Woven Together to become the hands, the feet, the heart of Jesus to our needy world.
