Bishop's Advent Study - Unrelenting Grace Chapter 1
Tuesday, November 28, 2023 at 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM Central Standard Time

Add to my calendar

Friends, we will soon embark on an online, conference-wide Advent Study of Bishop Ken Carter’s new book, Unrelenting Grace. In the first session, we will cover the introduction and chapter one, which focus on grace and holiness as a United Methodist way of life. We will talk about racism and our struggles with equity for our LGBTQIA+ siblings.  And, we will explore ways to live into the challenge that Bishop Carter puts before us, “of being an evangelical church that is welcoming to all.” 
Tuesday’s at 7 pm on Zoom: Nov. 28, Dec. 5, Dec. 12 and Dec. 19, 2023

This Advent, explore God’s Unrelenting Grace with the Iowa Annual Conference. Bishop Kennetha Bigham-Tsai invites your congregation to join with others across the state as we continue to remember who we are. With a foundation of Bishop Ken Carter’s new book, “Unrelenting Grace,” we will have teaching sessions prepared by Bishop Kennetha, worship materials, and other resources for use in your church. 

Register today to join the Advent Study Zoom Meetings.

Order by November 30 to receive a discounted rate when you purchase "Unrelenting Grace" from Cokesbury. We have arranged for local churches to get the book for $9.50 with free shipping if the order is over $60. Use code UNRELENT at checkout. 

We hope Advent in 2023 might be a season in which we embrace grace, seek holiness, and reconnect with one another, culminating in a conference-wide Epiphany worship service of commitment.
