I’ve been thinking about and praying for Bishop Johnson lately as she has dealt with church trials in the Eastern Pennsylvania Annual Conference. I have worked with Bishop Johnson on a number of occasions. She is perhaps the most visible advocate for people with disabilities in the United Methodist Church. I can’t say enough about the significance of her ministry in the UMC. I believe she is one of the finest bishops in the connection. Recently she gave a wonderful sermon at a commencement ceremony at United Theological Seminary.
She gives us a lot to think about in this blog post on keeping covenant. I commend it to your reading.
