The Executive Committee of the World Methodist Council met recently at the Council headquarters in Lake Junaluska, NC, USA following participation in the Korean Roundtable. They were there 2-1/2 days, which allowed for much-needed planning time, as well as taking care of other Council matters. The Steering Committee Meeting in Mexico City, August 28-31, 2019 was among the topics discussed.
In addition to taking care of a number of items that needed the Officer’s attention, they took time to visit Mary Hale, widow of former longtime WMC General Secretary Joe Hale. Mrs. Hale is in assisted living but her joy and pleasantness was appreciated as she remembered and shared old times with officers she had known some time ago.
