Well, it was definitely an evangelistic message. And I don't think that's a bad thing. Liberal Christians are so scared of the very mention of evangelism that we, as Bishop Hoshibata said, "hide our light under a bushel." He said that United Methodist Christianity is a gift to the world, one that we should be joyful to share. A difficult thing, but not a bad thing. We had discussions around the tables about what it means to be a disciple. The Bishop introduced the question by quote Discipline paragraphs 120-122. Their worth a look. In any case, we talked about people who apprentice themselves to the master, set Christ as the north star of their lives, and are committed to a lifetime of working toward being a better follow and living out one's faith in the world.

The MFSA lunch had a guest speaker talking about nuclear disarmament and resistence to the US Nuclear Bunker Buster program.

Now I'm off to Laity Session.
