The 21st World Methodist Conference concluded in Houston, Texas, on September 3, with over 2,500 in attendance over the course of the week. Powerful worship, new friendships, and compelling speakers made the Conference a memorable experience for those who were able to attend. Prior to the Conference, other groups held their meetings and events such as the Global United Methodist Clergywomen’s Gathering, The 13th World Assembly of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women, and the World Methodist Council meeting. This meant that, for some, the Conference provided yet another venue for connecting with friends, colleagues and new acquaintances.
We’ve gathered a few of the news stories and blog posts which recount the events during the Conference, which we hope will help you “relive the memories” or will help you to visualize the “family reunion” that was. Videos will be available for purchase online in late November.
