“I appeal to the people of the Northern Illinois Annual Conference to keep focused on the mission of Jesus Christ. We can and will work through our differences and find ways to honor one another and live with integrity, tolerance and grace. Let’s all pray for and await the report of the Commission on the Way Forward to the Council of Bishops, and participate in the discernment and work of organizing our life together that will follow.”
