Kinnick Driscoll gave the benediction at the close of the AC2018 Episcopal Address. Kinnick—Kid Pastor at Broadway United Methodist Church
in Council Bluffs—told Bishop Laurie, "I will pray my very best prayer!"
"Dear God, thank you for leading us down the road here.
Thank you for our worship day and night.
Thank you for making this a holy conferencing, not a kind of arguing conferencing.
Help us to recognize you more and to show courage when making decisions about the church.
Thank you for this day together at Annual Conference.
Show us the path forward to future Annual Conferences.
Help us to trust you and stop worrying like David and to help like Jesus.
And to win by always being fair.
Help us to be your great followers.
God, please watch over our pastors that are moving and keep them comfortable and safe.
Thank you for being here with us at Annual Conference.
And please fill this room with faith, hope and courage.
Thank you, Kinnick. You are amazing!
