If you keep up on your Mennonite news sources, you may have noticed that the Mennonite Church USA board has  called for prayer regarding both our denomination as a whole and their upcoming board meetings June 26 to 28.

We encourage you to think about the ways you depend on strong, healthy institutions, and to be in prayer for MCUSA as leaders discern how we might best be followers of Jesus Christ when we don’t all agree on what that looks like.

Below is a Powerpoint we sent to the MCUSA board by way of encouragement. As people who know the solace of creation and the ways in which it can reflect God’s love even in trying times, we decided to send them on a little virtual holiday to the natural setting nearest to their meetings. Take a look, picture their setting and add some visuals to your prayers!
